Mmmmmmm, strawberries! I love them and how they smell. Great way to let your children make some memories too. :D Going to check out the Better blog!


My mom has a huge strawberry patch that my girls "attack" every weekend when we are up at the lake. According to my girls, there is not a strawberry in the world that tastes as good as 'Mimi's Strawberries'! As a child, I loved eating the strawberries, but not so much the picking. Every so often, there was a little garden snake in the strawberry patch...EEEEK! That was enough to keep me away.


Yum! Strawberries!

And my man wears Old Spice.


What SWEET memories indeed!
We had a patch at our house growing up.
We'd travel a lot and come home to them eaten up by our elderly neighbor who claimed "the squirrels were at em, so I figured I'd get 'em first!"
;) Likely story!


Wow--Making the shortlist on the BHG blogroll = a nice feather in your cap! Congrats!!!


I love picking strawberries too. I don't have quite as fond memories considering I use to pick berries for work :), but I can't wait to plant a nice big patch of berries in our yard. I love fresh, juicy strawberries. Yum!

Memories in the making - well said. It sounds like your summer has been filled with lovely mornings - good for you, Sandi!

Please keep up the post-a-day. I'm enjoying them SO much!

Have a very Happy 4th of July!


Wow, how beautiful it is there, I want to move there now too.


Hi Sandi! I love those pics!! Thanks for sharing! The one reminds me of the poppy scene from Wizard of Oz. I got my hands on some of Farmers Market, I can't wait to get it in the mail and make something fab. Thanks again for your wonderful creativity!!


My daughter does this exact same thing with our cherry tomato plants! I have told her a million times to WAIT and we'll pick a bunch all at one time but she can't wait.

Our Church planted strawberries for use in making jam for our humanitarian projects. Well at the time they would also sell any extra. Since it was the first year they really didn't expect to get any fruit at all. At least any significant amounts so they didn't plan to get any buyers. The berries were very productive that year, and as Church members they told us that we could go pick whatever we wanted! I'm telling you the berries were the size of the palm of your hands! What a blessing! My kids had to be talked into picking at least 2 for the basket and 1 for them! Wonderful flavor too.
You might want to give the kids their own patch... that way you still get a few too!
Have fun. Gardening with the kids can be a real treat!
