Though I’ve been busy, and sluggish in my efforts, I’m still reaping benefits of early summer crops. Alleluia! Amidst the weeds, strawberries, a crop everyone should plant because of it’s ease of maintenance, are popping up everywhere. We picked our first juicy red bite just the other day. And herbs too… several herbs from past efforts came back with sprite this year. If the strawberries ever make it past our back door we’ll be making Strawberry Rhubarb Pie and I can’t imagine a summer picnic without picking herbs for my favorite Chicken Salad.
