First Strawberries!


First strawberries!  Yum!  Once you eat strawberries from your own (or someone else's) garden, you will NEVER buy them in a store again.  I gathered these, plucked a sprig of mint on my way into the house, and immediately made myself a fresh smoothie.

With all the wet weather we had a few weeks ago, I was really worried.  But today and yesterday I actually went out to the garden with a hose!  It's been real hot and we had a lot of sun, Alhamdulillah, so everything's coming up nicely. 

It's been SO hot that my garden friend, Buddy, doesn't even care to move from his place on the shaded front porch to joint me in the garden as he usually does.

What a wimp!

My favorite fruit! Strawberries are the best ones and are so delicious. I've heard that top pills it's creating a pill with strawberry flavor.
