The fruits of our labor

This is a photo of Owen taken during the first week of April at the point we realized weeds were threatening to take over our strawberry patch.  Since then we have weeded this bed nearly daily.  Sometimes we take out a weed or two with just a minute to spare and sometimes buckets full with hours to spend.   It is a job with no end, but we have continued to visit here each day in hopeful anticipation.   Something wonderful will come from this labor, right?  
You bet.

Sweet, sweet rewards.

  1. wow, you already have ripe Strawberries???? I am hoping to be really close to that, when we come back from the beach next Wednesday... and radishes. But let's face it, strawberries are MUCH better...
