Berry, berry happy

The first fruits of labour gives such immense satisfaction. A strawberry can’t be any more perfect to the grower, especially when they are amongst the hardest to grow organically. Strawberries are fruits of the genus Fragaria, a name derived from Latin for fragrant. Being everyone’s favourite berry, they are also highly popular with the insect pests, birds, bacteria, fungi and virus diseases, slugs, nematodes etc. What a hard life for a tiny berry!
