Picking Strawberries

Strawberry Patch


Strawberry Picking

Strawberry Harvest

We’ve enjoyed picking these juicy red beauties from our strawberry patch this week. God has blessed us with an abundant and oh-so-delicious harvest!

P.S. There’s a give-away of Breezy’s “Teach Them Diligently” chalkboard art print and an opportunity to help a family in need!

    About how many plants do you suppose you have?

    EmilyRuth, we’re guessing we have approximately 350-400 strawberry plants in our patch.

    The strawberries look absolutely delicious and your photography is incredibly beautiful! Besides being able to pick fruits (and veggies) at the peak of ripeness, there’s a wonderful feeling about growing your own. When my family had a garden, we never used pesticides…we would plant chives and marigolds among the vegetables to repel the bugs. We would also toss the fruit and vegetable peelings, scraps, cores, etc. in the garden and dig them in the ground. (We would have to wait until the ground thawed in the spring to bury the scraps that had been put there during the winter.) The earthworms that would be uncovered were enormous and their castings produced the best natural fertilizer. While we were digging up the ground in the spring, the opportunistic robins would gather on the fence waiting for a “juicy meal” to be uncovered. The vegetable scraps would occasionally produce “mystery” plants and we would sometimes find potato and squash plants that would come up among the tomatoes and cucumbers. I loved to pull up the potatoes, rinse them off (the very thin skins would just wash off too), and eat them raw. It was so wonderfull.

    These strawberries are beautiful! I’ve been meaning to start my own strawberry garden, but I’m not sure they would come out as good as these. lol
