Strawberries


This is the third year for my strawberry plants and I'm finally getting some decent yields! It's funny, I was standing in the grocery store yesterday looking at the strawberries on sale when it dawned on me that I could pick my own from the garden! Duh!! I picked a nice bowl full this morning and there are a lot more to go. The trick is to get them before the lizards do. Anyway, I assume it's the lizards as I have the bed completely covered with bird netting and I haven't had to rescue any of the Thrashers in about a week.
I'm a day late (but not a dollar short!) in linking up with Lisa for Farm Fresh Friday, Tayet for Forever Farmgirls Friday and Heidi and Deb for Farmgirl Friday! :)

Yummy!!!! They look so good. We don't have native strawberries here for a while yet. Enjoy!

My mouth is watering for some fresh berries...won't be long here, but I'll be buying this year. I just put in a new patch, and am sadly picking most of the blossoms off so they will grow stronger 'til another season!

Beautiful berries! I had four or five berries and then the two plants I have stopped yielding. I thought maybe it was getting too hot.

I love your light bulb moment at the grocery store! Of course I wouldn't be able to pick them if I knew there could be lizards lurking in the patch, eeek! Thanks for sharing with Farm Fresh Friday!!

Oh, yum! My blooming nicely, and i think this will be a good year for berries--providing my chickens don't eat all them.
