"As with much of Auckland (i'm sure), I have a surplus of grapefruit at the moment.  After this sunny patch, it's quite ripe and sweet - great for juicing, eating or marmalade."

Hi Jodi, lovely pic :) as for blackspotty strawberry leaves you could just cut the worst ones off and use  some comfrey or other compost tea as a foliar feed.( ie just pour over the leaves as you water with it ;) this will hopefully  put some good bugs out there to counteract the fungus thats affecting them. I just live with it and mine seem to still  fruit ok..
