Strawberries are synonymous with spring and summer.
Of late we have had some strawberry overload, powered by greed. Would you resist strawberries at less than dollar a pound? Neither did I.
I only wish that I was saying that we went strawberry picking in our backyard, with the girls and the basket – the kind in family movies and story books you know. I did dream a lot when I planted the strawberries and even more when we picked a few. I did not even complain that they were tiny. Our strawberries plants have a couple of flowers but no more fruits. All they are doing are growing longer limbs and stretching and gripping far and wide. This is our first time and we have no idea what to expect from them. So we have just let them be. Only once in a while I go and talk to them.
