One Strawberry Each!

Lon and I bought this hanging strawberry plant about a month ago.  I didn't really expect to see strawberries. 

For once, I'm glad I was wrong!!
Lon, Jared and I feasted on one strawberry a piece yesterday.  It's amazing how good something tastes when there's only one small morsel to savor!

Yummo strawberries! We're considering growing blueberries at our house. If we do, I can FedEx you a pie :)

YUMMY!!!!!!! I hope that a lot more grow and grow. Then you will need to get a HUGE tub of Cool Whip as dip :) Did you know strawberries also taste good in white zinfandel?

Good for you, Shaddy! Local strawberries are done here, so we're working on blueberries and peaches.

NATASHA: Thanks for dropping by! Blueberries and peaches are right up there with strawberries as far as delights of summer are rated.

Enjoy your days.
