> My strawberries produced their first berries just in time for a milestone…my son’s 4th birthday. His love of gardening has really been developing- he walks the garden with me and we point out flowers, he has planted the vegetables, but his favorite part is harvesting. Eating peas, tomatoes and strawberries straight from the patch. It was lovely to watch him scan the beds and find three red berries and put them in his bowl. And they tasted so sweet cut and placed atop each of the birthday cupcakes we had at dinner that night.
