Officially tasted



Grown. In. My. Yard.







My yard people!

Too bad I'm eating them just as fast as they ripen.   Please don't tell my kids.

Tell your kids what? Hehe...

They look amazing! I don't blame you for eating them immediately. That's what I did with my cherry tomatoes last year... I'd eat them as soon as I could wash them after picking.

Bloggy Mama said...

Yummmmmmmmmmmmm!!!

Jessica [beforethedawn.org] said...

I'd be doing the same thing. ;) LOL Fresh from the garden is the best.

Trudi said...

Mmmmm, looking forward to mine ripening soon too! Alas a few more weeks yet, the floweres are just going over, but hey, mom does the work, mom gets the perks! :) Enjoy!

Sarah Pead said...

Can I come over and help you eat them...err...I mean pick them? Strawberries are my number one favorite thing in the whole wide world to eat right now.

Little Bluebell (Adrianne) said...

Yummers! I have the opposite problem. My daughter is the stealth berry eater here. She's 2. Watchout.

The WoodLand School said...

These look absolutely delicious! And what a bonus that you grew them in your own yard!

Shevvy said...

I'm so jealous, all I grow in my garden are dandelions!

Stacy said...

Has to be one of the best things ever! We have a small 2x4 patch but I already have plans to plant another! Yum!

Amy - Park City Girl said...

Yummy! I just planted seeds this last weekend, but no strawberries here...

jabeybaby said...

I am so jealous, my strawberry plants are looking pretty sad. My broccoli is doing great though, go figure!

Elissa said...

i officially hate you. ;-) ;-) ;-)

Mama J said...

Gorgeous! Missing my mom's garden right now.

You lucky girl!

Shorty said...

Your last sentence made me smile. I love it that you're growing such beautiful little goodies! And I'm envious. We have a little garden this year and I feel like I'm competing with the bugs on who gets to eat my tomatoes!

Keep sneaking those strawberries!

Amy said...

those look yummy! I'm a bit jealous, we haven't even been able to start our garden, it won't stop raining for long enough and it seems like the days it does My hubby is at work forever, lame.

I want to come steal your strawberries for myself :)

Catherine said...

That's the best way to eat them and you've gotta make sure the're good enough for your kids!

susan said...

i am thinking of trying strawberries this year. i love making jam, wonder if those topsy turvy dealy things really work. we shall see. very nice looking berries. i noticed i am getting just starting to get buds on my raspberries. iam going to sell part of the crop at a local farmers market, we just cannot consume all we grow and i can only make so much jam.

imagrandma2five said...

I have to fight the chipmunks for my strawberries. I have them covered with bird netting so maybe this year I'll come out ahead! LOL!

Birgit said...

In your garden? Really? It's so cold here -- no strawberry would want to grow around here at the moment.

Eat a strawberry for me, Dana. :)

Hugs,
Birgit

Kimberly said...

You grow bum berries in your yard? Sweet!

amylouwho said...

Sewn With Grace said...

What a great photo! The red against the blue is so pretty. Good quilt colors! :)

Tine said...

YUM! You know, visiting you (even if it is only in blogland) always makes me want a house with a yard, and preferably in the middle of nowhere. How can that be?
I'll have to make a post for you about my neighborhood, it's such a contrast!

Stephanie D. said...

They'll think you're a terrible gardener, but who cares?


(Please pass the chocolate!)

Kim said...

Yummy that is the best way to eat them......still warm from the sunshine :0).....my plants are just blooming up here in NY :0).

I am fighting getting on facebook since I already spend too much
time on the computer :0).
Happy Sewing...or is now officially
gardening season?

sarah, rsm said...

Mmmmmmmmmm, they look delicious! I have been buying them at the fruit market lately like they are going extinct! I bet yours are sweeter then mine ... seein' that they're homegrown and all. :)

Dianne said...

Yummy strawberries! The colors look wonderful in the sweet bowl...

Mountain Mama (Wesley Jeanne) said...

I am so sad because the neighborhood dogs dug ours up--all 50 plants!
