We ate our first strawberries out of the field last night. That is what got me (Anna) started on this fruit tangent. The strawberries were a little on the sour side, but that didn't bother the kids at all. Fruit is fruit. Although, to offer perspective, rhubarb (no, not a fruit), is eaten straight out of the garden by our kids. They walk around gnawing on a stalk. Now that's sour.
|This is not the row we ate from. These are new plantings that we will hopefully harvest in the fall.|

See a June, 2011 post about the trellis.
The battle with the birds is not new to us. Here is a post related to netting this very tree.
