Strawberries out our ears!!!

Friends, I think I am just about strawberry-ed  out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   I have been harvesting them 2 times a day now since February the 26th.  I have been getting 20 to 60 berries everyday. We have 200 in the ground and 15 in pots.  I have a freezer full of berries.   I have berries in the sink soaking there-waiting for me to fix them for the freezer or for today or tomorrow consumption.  I am tired of harvesting them and I am tired of trying to think of ways to use them!!!  I am straw berried out!!!   NOT TIRED OF EATING THEM THO!!!

Love coming your way, Zoie & Fern

  2. My father said he never got to eat a fresh strawberry. My mom always froze so many that she made him eat the last of the frozen when the new crop came in. Wish we still had them but they are pretty much gone for this year.

  3. Hi Fern, it's finally strawberry season up here. It's been a very cool Spring. And with summer starting tomorrow, the sun and some heat (maybe 70 degrees will start). If we lived closer, we'd come over and help you eat all the berries :)

  9. How I wish I could be there to help you snarfle them lol. It's so hard to get tasty strawberries here. I think the last time I had memorable strawberries was in the 90s in Brisbane, freshly picked on a farm. I kid you not. The ones we get in our local supermarket should have been left to die in the ground, they're so tasteless. And they cost too much.

    Do you make jams or bake/cook with them?

  12. Ours are organic grown!! They are getting where they are some times not as sweet as they were a month or two ago.. Maybe the soil is wearing out???? Good Lord those berries have given 1,000's and 1,000's of berries!!!

  13. Hi Fern! I feel the same way about our blackberries that you do about your strawberries--I wish we could trade! :-)

    I hope you're doing well--Its been a long, long sad week for us with Sam, but I'm a little better today. Take care, and I'll look forward to catching up soon!
