Last year the garden suffered…a lot. We have a huge strawberry patch. Last year the birds ate the green berries and the deer ate all the leaves. It was sad. Plus we didn’t get a single strawberry.
This year though, we have a bumper crop. I’ve never seen so many sweet strawberries. Warren picks huge containers every night. My kitchen smells like strawberries. My friends and family have taken loads.
Remember I don’t cook. So, I just want to eat them plain. A girlfriend made a pie for Warren. I’m not a pie lover, but I had a bite and it was delicious! We have given away so many already. I just hope we get this many berries next year.
Today I’m thankful for all those delicious, flavorful, sweet strawberries. Indiana berries (and cantaloupe) are the very best for flavor.
