First Time Picking Strawberries

Our front yard is designed and planted to be a “fruit forest.” That’s what we’re hoping it will grow into, anyway. The fruit trees (six dwarf varieties — apple, sweet cherry, peach, pear, plum, and apricot) are only in their second year, and the strawberry, raspberry, and blackberry plants have a lot of spreading out to do before they cover all of the ground between plants.

But still, even though all of the plants are young, we get a little bit of fruit. Our 20-month-old daughter was ready this year to discover the wonders of picking and eating ripe berries right off the plants.

"Yummy!"
