Strawberry Fields

Today I’m thankful for strawberries.

I love strawberries.  My grandparents would always reserve a row in their garden for “my” strawberries.  My grandfather would pretend he didn’t see that most of the berries I picked got eaten instead of put in the basket.  During holiday meals they would sometimes put one or two on their plate and pretend to turn away, allowing me to “steal” the fruit from under their noses.  Strawberries and I go back a long way.

I didn’t grow any this year.  This was my first gardening year in a very long time.  I was mostly trying to keep my plants from dying.  Strawberries are supposed to be a simple plant to keep so I think I will try next season.
