I really must stop buying strawberries.

Whenever I go into town (usually to buy milk and/or apples and oranges), I am tempted to buy strawberries.
There are three outlets, and I check whether the prices are within my price range - sometimes not, but usually yes, sometimes well under.
On occasions I have bought up to two kilos . . .

Of course, the cheaper prices are usually for fruit that 'will not keep', so they have to be eaten the same day.

Today I restricted my purchase to just one punnet (sometimes the offer is three punnets for 2), however, on arriving home I tasted them and they were so delicious that I didn't stop until they are all gone.

I guess that supplies will dry up soon, or get too expensive for me to consider.
