Every month of June, my sister has a beautiful garden with strawberries. My sister isn't the gardener-type, unlike a lot of women in the region. For the many women that I've come to know here, gardening is a passion and a way of life. And who can blame them, I reckon it is a luxury to be able to grab your own fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs from the backyard. DO might not appreciate her garden, but I sure am seeing myself having one in the foreseeable future!
Here's the first handful I managed to pick. I think I must have been too excited for my first time because I see a couple of white-tipped ones here. Strawberries are best when they are red all over. By the way, did you know that the strawberry is the only fruit with its seed on the exterior??? The ones above need a good rinse and cleaning, but we all know what we're having for dessert tonight! Handpicked strawberries from the backyard - now, just saying that makes feel giddy! Hahahaha! Excuse the weirdness! :)
