Strawberry season

I don’t know why on earth the strawberries are as happy as they are. I forgot to fertilize them last Fall, but despite my neglect they are just loaded. We’ve been eating them here and there whenever we go out. Don’t tell the Mom Police, but in fact they’re a great “babysitter” while I wheel compost back and forth, because SofĂ­a will sit there intently searching out and harvesting every single red one she can find for an hour at a stretch. I can get a lot done out there in an hour! And she’s eating raw organic fruit at the same time? Win!

They’re ripening faster now, so we took a basket with us the last time we went out that way.

Just under two pounds, and the majority have yet to ripen. I bet we’ll have enough to make our own jam this year!

    so good Sofia likes raw fruit. Our strawberries are going well too, but not as well as yours. Coby turned up his nose at the strawberries. That’s OK, cause maybe we will get to taste some. Maybe next year…

    Ours are doing well too! But with all my hungry monkeys, my garden would have to be cover in strawberries for me to have extra for jam, lol! We have been getting 50-60 a day in the last week.
