It’s a tradition to photo the first strawberry of every season. We cut it up into pieces so everyone can enjoy a *very small* taste of summer together. Until the strawberries start ripening in baskets-full, we look like little mice nibbling away at our morsels.
Strawberries are easy to grow in this area. Are you still considering a few plants?
Also, keep your eye open for the Amish families who sell strawberries at the Old Fort intersection and throughout the Valley. As soon as we spot them, we pull over, ask for a sample, and buy several quarts. (It’s important to ask for a sample especially if you’re planning on buying a large quantity. You don’t want to be stuck with gallons of sour berries.) They’re usually perfectly sweet, so I bring them right home and freeze them. They are delicious!
Enjoy your home,
