Strawberry field

You don't want to see my strawberry "field" since as of right now it is under cover with grass and weeds!  We are moving the garden more downhill so thinking about what is up the hill is well out of sight, out of mind. Then I thought that my strawberries would be coming in next month....well, surprise!
My son-in-law was walking around the back yard when he spotted the strawberries, and he proceeded to pick a whole bucket full. So, I decided to check on them and my lavender which needed to be spruced up a bit mainly getting rid of the grass growing around the lavender plants. I'm thinking of leaving them where they are as they are huge, and have always done well in that spot.
I picked these yesterday, don't they look yummy? There are still more to pick though they are not ripe yet. I guess the grass is hiding them from the birds! So another task to put on my list....to make a new strawberry patch down the hill. Looks like it is going to be a busy season!

They do look yummy! We only have three plants and the birds get to the strawberries before we do -lol.

Those do look so yummy! My MIL bought some the other day and I totally guessed where they came from. Sort of cool in a way. Now I just have to be sure to eat them and enjoy them while they are still nice and beautiful!

Hi Ulrike,

Lucky you to have your own strawberries! They look really good.

Oh, these strawberries look absolutely scrumptious - I love freshly picked strawberries. I don't have a yard, so I go to the field where you can either pick your own or buy them ready picked ...Sommer Fruechte sind etwas ganz besonderes!

Lasst es Euch schmecken!

Liebe Gruesse,
von Doris
