our unexpected strawberry patch

Last year, we planted strawberries and were quite confused when our plants produced hardly any strawberries. (Novice gardeners, we are.) I was disappointed but didn't give it much thought because I was pregnant. (If you've been pregnant that last sentence made complete sense to you.)

I have since learned that strawberry plants produce a large crop their second year. What a delightful surprise!

The kids have loved picking, washing, and feasting. Then taking the rest to the playground to share with friends!

Thanks to Sheldon for leading and taking pictures of the strawberry picking. :)
