Emma and I enjoyed our first ever strawberry harvest today.



They were delicious! They're so much (SO MUCH) better than grocery store strawberries, even if they are smaller. We have lots more coming, on the six plants on our patio, and the berries that formed later seem to be getting bigger.

Picking strawberries with my mom and sister at the local u-pick place, then processing them to freeze, is one of my favorite memories from growing up. The smell of those two berries we picked today, all warm from the sun, immediately transported me back to age 14.

Sharing strawberries with a child is great fun.
