Cold slow spring at the allotment

It’s been a cold slow spring. Windy. Wet. Fairly yucky all told. The plot grows on, but in a slow steady kind of way. This time last year we were gorging on strawberries. This year they’re forming more slowly and with the exception of one large fruit turning pale pink most are dark hard green nubs – far from the table for now!
