Sweet and Juicy!


According to some bloke on the telly, Queensland strawberries have had the perfect weather recently: warm days and cold nights. With this in mind, on our way back to Brisbane from the Sunshine Coast on Sunday, we hung a sharp left at the big strawberry. Being inflatable rather than fibre-glass, I don't think this one qualifies as a "Big" thing but it certainly grabs your attention.

They are $15 for a kilo which is about the same as you'd pay in the shops at the moment but the taste is sooooo much better because they have ripened on the plant. We may have scoffed a few on the way round just to be sure. They didn't disappoint. Really sweet and juicy and the best strawberries I've tasted since I've been in Australia.

That photo is the next best thing to actually eating them. Very creative and beautifully executed, Cara. Surely they're not better than strawberries from your homeland?

Beautiful shot.

As good as I've tasted anywhere, Alan, and I'm usually one to bang on about how English strawberries are unbeatable.
