It's time for strawberries here in southeast Texas. I couldn't wait for perfect ripeness and we picked a few from our strawberry patch. They look and taste great!
This is our 6' by 6' patch that we planted last year. Nice and full compared to last year when we planted it. I picked all the flowers which forced it to send out runners instead of fruits.
Here's our first fruits. Ready for breakfast.
Unfortunately this is not near enough for jams so this patch is just for fresh fruits. Time for a little pick your own at 2 bucks a pound. So, off to Frobergs we go! This is a pick your own and farmers market south of Houston.
|20 acres to pick.|
|One happy pickin wife.|
|20 pounds of berries!|
|One that didn't make it to the jam pot.|
|Sallie Mae on guard should any berries try to make a run for it. Sorry baby but that just ain't going to happen.|
These babies are ripe and so sweet!
