Click on the picture to make it bigger... The first strawberries of the season from my garden!!! Yaaayy! I LOVE fresh, Ontario strawberries; they are the BEST strawberries in the world.
Ok, I know, I sound a little over-enthusiastic, but when you live in a country where your produce is home-grown and fresh for only a few months a year, you do tend to get a little excited about the season. And other than peach season, strawberry season is my favourite! I have yet to taste strawberries from anywhere else that are better than fresh, Ontario strawberries. YUM!
And these babies were no exception...
They were a little earlier than normal, which is kind of weird considering the crazy cold weather we've been having, but in a few weeks we'll be able to go strawberry picking and I soooo look forward to coming home with baskets upon baskets of them.
When I was a kid, we'd eat so many strawberries at this time, that we'd actually get tired of them!
So here's to strawberry season... Hip Hip Hooray!
