Home grown strawberries!
I picked some today to make a strawberry-rhubarb crisp.
But you know what? They taste so incredibly delicious plain and warmed by the sun.
That I’m going to have a little bowl of them just as they are! Au naturale!
This is my strawberry bed. The pots on the sticks are so I don’t poke my eye out when I go to remove the netting!
As you can see, once the berries start to turn red we have to net them or the pesky birds come and take nibbles out of them!
I really want to encourage you to grow your own! They grow in pots if you don’t have a space outside. I read that they grow well in those Topsy Turvy planters too!
Believe me, a store bought strawberry doesn’t taste anything like a homegrown one!
As always, thanks for visiting today. I hope you all have wonderful weekends!
