Don't you just love spring/summer time???  I know I do.  We spent last weekend getting out garden started, planting seeds, pepper plants, tomatoes, and potatoes in addition to the onions we had already started.  Yesterday, we went to out local flea market, where we get our plants, and got some strawberry plants.
My daughter LOVES strawberries, so I figured they would be a very welcome addition to our garden. So we picked out 7 plants. 

So there they were!! Ready to put into the ground.  We I (thats right, I am taking all the credit, because my he didn't really help me much) took out an area of grass, tilled it up, and got them in the ground!

So there they are!!! In the ground.  In all fairness I will give my husband some credit (he did hand me the plants so I could put them in the ground).  So, now came the fun part.  There were already several strawberries that were ready to pick.  So we got out a bowl, and got my daughter all hyped up about picking the strawberries. 
Thats them!!! Small, but not bad for the fact that we had literally just put them in the ground! Then it was in the house to wash them, and thanks to my daughter they were gone in literally 3 minutes!! Although I do thank her for at least giving me ONE!!!!!


  1. Yummy! I can't wait till mine and producing!
    glad you posted this, maybe others will see how easy it really is and will grow there own :)

  2. yeah, they really are easy. From start to finish it only took me about 15-20 minutes to get them all in the ground!!! And there is nothing better than fresh picked fruits and vegis right out of the garden :)
