During a recent break in Devon we discovered a meadow nearby that was filled with wild strawberries.
The children were delighted as they love these precious jewels – they hunt them down like hidden treasure.
We have propagated some plants in our garden at home and they spread like wildfire and will grow almost anywhere.
Once the season is upon us the kids need no encouragement, they zoom outdoors first thing in the morning to hunt down the ripest fruits. Most get eaten straight off the plant but any survivours are only saved long enough to be dropped into their breakfast cereal.
They are the first fruits available to the Urbane Foraging family; they taste sweet and strong and they are a naturally healthy addition to other foods.
