Just one more reason to love summer...STRAWBERRIES!!!!
Our patch is so overgrown with weeds this year (this fall we definitely have our work cut out for us)...but we are already getting strawberries! Kendall and I couldn't resist the urge to get out there and get pickin'!! This year the berries are smaller, but still very sweet. Noah just stood in the patch, asking for one after another...not working, just eating...which is actually fine with me, seeing as how he probably would've stomped all over my plants AND the ripening strawberries! Oh, the horror!!!
I knew when we moved out here that I HAD to have a strawberry patch. I remember summers when I was little, going to my Grandma's house and plopping myself down right in the middle of her strawberry patch. It was like heaven...the berries were so big and red, and warm from the sun. I would just sit there and eat one after another until my belly was full and my face was stained red. What a wonderful memory...I can only hope that Kendall and Noah will have such fond memories of our strawberry patch! Looks like Kendall's on her way....she even loves the smell of those little red gems...
