First Strawberry harvest of 2012
Saturday, 16 Jun 12 Partly Sunny 20°C / 68°F
Today I harvested the first Strawberries of 2012 – then I knelt on them!!! ;-((
I had picked some berries & put them in a plastic beg which I moved around with me while picking the first ripe fruits as well as cutting off the runners. Everything was alright till I stepped out of the strawberry cage & set the bag on the ground while I moved further forward to cut some runners that had escaped me earlier & were coming out of the cage. Absorbed in this & moving backwards I didn’t realize, till it was too late, that I was getting ever closer to the bag. All of a sudden I felt something squash beneath my knee & I realized at once that I’d put my knee on the bag of Strawberries, crushing many of them! :‘(( That’s why in the photo there are so few!!! They were the few survivors!
