I love strawberries! Strawberries mean spring and sunshine and happy memories. I can remember being just a small thing and always in the way when my parents were trying to garden. So, they would set me down in the midst of the strawberry patch and leave me there to pick and eat the berries while they worked. Of course, that was back in the day before parents entertained their children with DVD's and computers and games! I also associate strawberries with my birthday because as far back as I can remember, I have always had strawberry icecream and strawberry shortcake on my birthday!
This weekend Mike, his mother and I picked about 45 pounds of strawberries. It was the first weekend for them here.
