Scary Strawberries

We went to the garden centre again. This time to buy strawberry plants. I can barely contain the excitement. We bought four varieties; Cambridge, Pegasus, Elsanta and some wild strawberries. Later, over dinner, when we were telling Garden Dad about our day, Garden Girl got a little worried about the idea of having 'wild' strawberries in the garden. She said 'I like strawberries but I don't like wild ones'. I'm not sure, but I think she was worried they would be 'too roary', a term she uses to describe scary wild beasts like lions or meat eating dinosaurs.

I explained that wild strawberries were sweeter and tastier than the ones she is used to eating and she responded by nodding her head and saying 'mmm yummy', so hopefully her fears were alleviated. Garden Boy needed no explanation to tempt him; he was already trying to tuck into the strawberry plant leaves before we even left the shop.
