I harvested 3 strawberries!! My first of the season!! They tasted like the sweetness of the sun. It may only be 3 berries, but I am ecstatic none the less.
I have 12 strawberry plants this year. I plan to expand three fold by next season. My family’s consumption of berries is through the roof! This June I will take advantage of the u-pick berry farms in the area. You can't beat picking freshly grown strawberries straight from the farm from $1.00 - $1.50 a pound. My freezer will be full by the end of the month! Check out the u-pick farms in your neck of the woods at http://www.pickyourown.org/
