This is the first year I’ve planted strawberries. Kevin requested them when I was planning the garden. I was reluctant since I’ve heard they are kind of a pain to grow, or that they take several years to produce fruit. But, I thought I’d give it a go and sped the process up by buying plants that were already two years old. So, here is our first fruit! Isn’t it just so pretty? Lucie asks every single day if she can pick them. Today I finally let her. Now, we have none because she picked and ate all four. She really liked watching them get more ripe every day. She really liked picking and eating them. I guess next year I might have enough to actually do something with. There are still about 10 green ones, so maybe next week we can enjoy a few more.
