I went strawberry picking with a couple of friends out on a farm yesterday.  Fresh farm picked strawberries are one of my favorite things about summer! The strawberries are so sweet and fresh, you can smell them walking towards the fields.  There is nothing like tasting a warm, sun-ripened strawberry for the first time. They are so much better than store bought ones, I will never go back to grocery store strawberries!!   I had to stop myself from picking them after I gathered 2 pints! I’m not sharing these with Jeff,  these are all for ME! me me ME! YES!

The raspberries were also beginning to ripen, so I got a couple handfuls of these sweet beauties:

Breakfast today is greek yogurt, almond vanilla agave granola, swirls of honey topped with fresh berries! YUM!

The rest are for me to snack on!  I know they won’t last long!

Yay for summer and yay for fresh strawberries!

Grow your own!They taste SO much betetr, and you know that they have been exposed to nothing but your care and protection.Strawberries are really easy to handle – in fact, i think that your greatest concern will be to stop them from conquering all your garden.I recomend building “high-beds” for the plants.Make a wood frame no larger than 1.2 x 2.4 meters (so you can harvest the centre) and minimum 15 cm high. Place it in a sunny spot of your graden – Fill it with good earth, and plant the strawberrie-plants in a 10×10 cm grid. If you start now, you might get a few berries this year, and a LOT next year… Thats the case in Denmark at least, but i guess it is the same in Oregon – or maybe betetr It REALLY would be sad if you dont get to taste the sweet fruit again… did i mention that strawbberries is on my top 3 fruitlist )I am happy to read your story – that is a good sign of you beeing fit for fight again.
