strawberry mousse

Lucinda (DH France ) is almost a horticulturalist growing vegetables and fruits organically in her homestead in France. She says in the summer she harvested 5 kilos of strawberries every few days. Today she posted how she enjoys her strawberry harvest.

  • They had spent some time wandering desultorily thus, Tess eating in a half-pleased, half-reluctant state whatever d'Uberville offered her. When she could consume no more of the strawberries, he filled her little basket with them; and then the two passed round to the rose-trees, whence he gathered blossoms and gave her to put in her bosom. 
    She obeyed like one in a dream, and when she could affix no more, he himself tucked a bud or two into her hat and heaped her basket with others in prodigality of his bounty.

  • Tess of the D'Urbervilles - 1891 Thomas Hardy
