Harvest time!

Posted by Liz on May 27, 2010 in Home |

I know I’ve used this space regularly to update and brag about Benjamin and the milestones he is accomplishing. However, it’s almost June which means it’s time to harvest strawberries (and lots of them). We decided to only do strawberries and tomatoes in our garden this year. So we purchased some new strawberry plants a couple weeks ago in an effort to expand our current patch. (We’ve been told that most strawberry plants only last 3 to 4 years with a good crop, so we weren’t sure what to expect this summer. . . . summer number 4 for our “old” plants.)

Well, needless to say, we’ve picked strawberries twice this week. Here’s what we picked tonight.

And here’s the pint I picked on Tuesday night. (The picture doesn’t really do it justice.)

We’ve picked 2 pints of strawberries in 3 days, and there are still a ton of berries left on the plants. Guess we have a little “Farmtown” going on. Anybody want to come harvest our strawberry fields?
