I've been out picking gooseberries, raspberries and strawberries tonight. The raspberries are a little disappointing, but the strawbs are a great crop.

The scent of the strawberries while I was picking was wonderful - really jammy. So I'm making some jam - about three pounds. To be honest, the berries are a bit ripe for jam, so it might not set very well but it will taste fine.

The gooseberries are for freezing and the raspberries are for eating tomorrow - on my Bran Flakes, to start the day.

Strawberry season was a bust here, not many although delicious. The raspberry crop looks like it will make up for it. Keep cool!
