First strawberry harvest!

22 Mar 2012
Storms 24°C / 75°F

The first strawberry harvest of the year! A tiny one, a small one, and a medium-sized one. The flavor in each case was HUGE. :)

These are not the first strawberries to ripen this year, but they ARE the first ones that I’ve gotten to before other critters! When harvesting these, I tucked all of the ripening berries under the cover of strawberry leaves, to try to hide them from birds…

I’m a little envious … we’re at least two months away from fresh, local strawberries.

I agree with HollyBee, and I love that little round one!

I’ll be jealous of both of you when summer rolls around, but for right now I’m loving being right here! :)

No strawberries here until June, I’m afraid. Yours look delicious!

They’re not numerous, but they are delicious!
