We heard there were storms coming but I didn't see storm clouds until this afternoon. About the same time I saw strawberries in our garden.
The raised bed kitchen garden that sits neglected and overgrown with weeds because I am sick and Ed is way too busy to get into the garden.
Didn't start any seeds this year; have not felt well enough to do it.
The strawberries were planted last year (we have garlic too - Carole came up last fall to put it in for me because I couldn't) and there are tons of them. I saw them and I saw those clouds and I didn't want to lose too many to the rain I knew was coming.
This is what I picked in 10 minutes (just the ones hanging out in the open) and there are still plenty more. I left the ones that were under leaves, and the ones that have been munched on by the chipmunks I saw scurry out as I approached the strawberry bed.
But look at these beauties; nice fresh organic strawberries which will be eaten as is - unadulterated popping into the mouth without the disguise of any other flavour. Just big fat juicy strawberries - yummy! Nature is good.
