My First Strawberry

The first strawberry from my giant strawberry plants! Deeeeelicious!

You will notice that the splint is OFF my finger! I still have to wear it at night for another 6 weeks & can't lift anything heavy or ride yet. It is very stiff but that should improve with physio. Can you believe I broke it in January? The hand doctor said that it takes much longer for the tendon to re-attach than it takes for the bone to heal.

It actually feels quite weird without it on, but I'm happy!


  1. Wow! That is some size strawberry! :) xxx

  2. Oooh Strawberries!
