Strawberry pickin'

The strawberries in the garden started ripening this week and I've been picking them everyday.

Fresh, plump, juicy, sweet strawberries! YUM

Yummy! I don't grow strawberries in my garden...I wish I did! I just purchase a huge basket from the local farmers market.

I can not believe you have strawberries already; you are way before us. Scandinavia is famous for wonderful strawberries, I guess it has the right combination of temperature and sun.
But the picking season starts first in mid June.;))
Lovely pictures as always.;)

Lucky you to be able to pick them from your own backyard. I have been buying them from the local farm stands and they have been delicious so far.

They look excellent!
We don't start getting local strawbs until the middle of June.
We are eating imports from the USA at the moment.

Mary said...

Oh, my. I can put a hurtin' on those strawberries!

I haven't been reading blogs for a long time either, Donna. I guess when the summer gets too hot I'll be indoors reading blogs more often.

Nice to hear from you!

Hi Donna,

Oh - lucky you - your strawberries look yummy. I tried to grow some and think the racoons or some critter in the night ate them.
Nothing like home grown and fresh from the garden.
Have fun in your garden,

Meggie said...

Gorgeous looking berries! Enjoy!

They look delicious. I love the little sweet ones best. Especially when they come right out of the garden. Mimi

Hi Donna - Oh YUM! mom and dad grew these on our organic farm and nothing is sweeter than a home grown strawberry. Do Riley and Otis ever beat you to the harvest? ; )
