Nice Surprise

We have strawberries already and boy are they sweet!  We have to pick them when they're about half-ripe or the critters eat them before we can get them.  We picked the first one on Friday, left it to ripen a bit more on the kitchen counter and ate it today.  It was sooooo sweet.  There are a bunch more out there, but they're still white so I'll have to wait awhile to pick them.  What a nice surprise.

  2. Oh, that is a sweet surprise, and in February! When I read your last comment on my blog, I thought, wonder why I never see a post from you...well, your blog is one of those missing from my new list. Remember back when I accidentally deleted all the blogs. I'm sorry. So glad I figured that out. I can be so dumb! :)

  3. Strawberries in February sound like a real treat. We'll see the first homegrown towards the end of June....

  4. It's always nice to get that first taste, isn't it? Way too early for me.
    Love your header!

  7. I had three strawberries last year and that was it. I decided no more fruits and veggies here, they just don't grow well. Enjoy!

    Wishing you a wonderful week ahead...

  11. That's indicative of the difference between your climate and ours. Mind you, these days you can most things in the shops all year round - though I miss part of the excitement of seasonal changes in some ways.

  12. Strawberries already, how wonderful! Did you know they're my favorite food? I'll have to wait until May before I can pick any at my house, though. Enjoy!
