Strawberries for Breakfast

Homegrown Strawberries

in In the Garden

Lately, this is what breakfast looks like around our house.

After I drop Nate off at daycare, and before I begin my school work for the day, I wander around the back yard, water the flowers, deadhead the annuals, take a few photographs of the progress in the garden, and then gather the fruits of our labour out there. Morning seems to be the best time of day for picking strawberries; the birds and bugs have not yet had enough time to devour everything in sight! This is an everbearing variety of strawberry, so I am hopeful that we will continue to enjoy them throughout the summer. Nate loves looking for and eating strawberries (and pea pods and radishes and beets) in the garden, which is a huge chunk of my incentive to continue to grow food in our yard.
