I'm obsessed with strawberries. They're my favorite fruit, hands down (some years, they have a little competition from raspberries, but usually the strawberries win every face-off). My own little strawberry plantation will have fruit ready to eat soon, I hope- I've planted strawberries around all my herbs, they adapt well to different environments and adjust their space requirements to the space available.

I've got seven different varieties of strawberries- large ones, especially fragrant ones, special ones intended for jam, wild ones, ones that are supposed to taste of a mix of strawberries and pineapple, ones that are supposed to taste more like raspberries, and several plants of the especially hardy variety that will bear fruit until October.

Soon, soon I will get to taste them all. Until then, have some pics.

(in case it wasn't clear, I'm so much better today. Thanks for all your well-wishes on my last post, I know I just need to be patient with myself. Problem is, that's still something I'm trying to learn- I'm a perfectionist.)

    Very exciting - it's so much fun to see the things you plant grow - and to be able to taste the bounty! I love strawberries too, and this is the first year we've planted some. We've eaten two so far. Some other critter (a squirrel?) has also eaten a couple, though!

    Glad you are feeling better today. And so jealous of your strawberries, they are one of my faves as well.
