:open_mouth: Bloody hell! A bad week for strawberry fans


Agree, we have been eating them by the 1/2kg to kilo every week for the past few months…since there is a glut and prices have been very reasonable. My thought is if you increase demand, it may increase prices which will flow back to the farmers.

Fortunately we tend to cut the strawberries into small bite sized pieces…and often have them with natural Greek yoghurt, other fruit or homemade custard.
