Picking strawberries in the garden

Strawberry on plant

In the past couple years we have grown strawberries the story has been my oldest daughter salivating over the strawberries asking, “Is it red enough yet?”

This year her desire for strawberries is just as great though with the plant maturing as well as the additional plant we propagated last year she has been easily getting her fill with plenty more ripe strawberries on the plants.  Not wanted to be wasteful, we went out and picked all of the ripe strawberries.

Not having enough to make something like jam or even some strawberry shortcake for the family we opted to make a strawberry milkshake.
