Our first harvest

OK, so the title is a bit excessive, given the size of our "harvest" - but we have a strawberry!  I mean, a real, actual, honest-to-goodness strawberry!

It was tiny, but red, peeking out from under the leaves of our strawberry plant.  Unfortunately, Brendan just had his wisdom teeth out today, so he couldn't share it with me - but I most definitely brought it in, washed it, and ate it.

And it was delicious - made even sweeter by the fact that I grew it myself.  So, so wonderful - can't wait to have more this summer!


  1. Yay for homegrown fruit! I've never done it because I have the black thumb of death for plants.

  2. We've had surprisingly good luck with plants thus far......only one wilted tomato, and I'm not sure it's totally dead yet! The cherry tomato plant seems like it will be very prolific. I'm surprised that things are growing this well, since I have no idea what I'm doing!
