Strawberry Soufflé

My alternative to ice -cream is a chilled soufflé. This year we have harvested more then 30 kgs of strawbetrries. With more than 100 strawberry plants, we are sure to get our hands full.
Strawberry is an easy growing plant . It can even be planted in a pot but out of the wind. They prefer to be place in sunny area with well drained soil. They can produce fruits for 5 years & most of our strawberries are Garigutte, the French strawberry.

We are growing our strawberries in a hill system for 5 years now. It is also known as the best way of growing strawberries. With this method all runners are removed and by doing so only the original mother plant remains. By removing the runners makes the mother plant to develop more crowns and flower stalks. Mulching is very important for strawberries. They protect them from cold during the cold winter months and also to keep the fruit from the soil contact. During the hot summer weather it conserve soil moisture as well.

Even Elizabeth began to fear- not that Bingley was indifferent- but that his sisters would be successful in keeping him away. Unwillingly as she was to admit an idea so destructive of Jane's happiness, and so dishonourable to the stability of her lover, she could not prevent its frequently recurring. The united efforts of his two unfeeling sisters and of his overpowering friend, assisted by the attractions of Miss Darcy and amusements of London, might be too much, she feared, for the strength of his attachment.
