my little strawberry plants that I worried about through the winter have pulled through in full force. once it started producing we can't seem to pick the ripe berries fast enough. when we play out in the yard its nice to walk over and pick a few to eat right off the stem. bray loves checking to see if they are ripe:
"ohh, still green."
"this is all red!"
it also makes for a great summer treat to bring over to a night of card games. pick a bunch, rinse and cut. mix in a little whipped cream and have a great snack all night!
