Strawberry Days

My hands are stained with sweet smelling juice.
The kids pick & eat as they please.
Fresh from our little garden patch -
Strawberry days are these!

(These are what some would call organic. We call them homegrown delicious!)
I made up the little rhyming number, myself.
 
*See how we enjoyed & preserved our strawberry harvest here.

  8. Parenting tip: Never take your children to a strawberry patch in a white shirt!

    There speaks the voice of experience.

    Once you start on the road to bird photography, you can never turn back!

  14. Beautiful berries! I would love to do a better job of growing strawberries. We had a few puny plants years ago, but the strawberries were small and tart. Yours look amazing!

  16. Wish we were there to help you eat those strawberries. We haven't found many really good ones this year. Guess our area has had too much rain..

    Happy 4th. God Bless America.
    Hugs,

  18. Yummy! Yesterday all of us girls in the family went bright and early to a huge produce farm where we picked 29 pounds of strawberries! We froze most of them so we can eat them with yogurt this winter, its so nice having fresh but frozen strawberries :)

    I hope you had a awesome 4th of July!

  20. Enjoy the taste, your juicy fingers and the scent!
    Such a lovely poem - you brought a smile on my lips :)
    Fresh strawberries are a highlight of the summer -
    homegrown are even a "de luxe edition"!
    Sunshine to your weekend, Amanda!

  21. What a lovely time! My grandchildren ( grazing and browsing animals all) were often to be found in my garden, it is only a short hike uphill for them, and gorging themselves on strawberries, raspberries, loquats or anything else that was in season, peas, beans, nothing was safe from them. One of our massive droughts put an end to it. Hoping to re-establish my berry patch this year, back permitting . . .
    Lovely crop you have there.
