Watch Our Garden Grow- Harvesting Strawberries!


Our strawberry plants have begun producing juicy, red strawberries!


Each morning Jack and I head outside to see what strawberries on our plants are ready to be picked (and eaten- they rarely make it inside!). I'm a beginner at the whole gardening thing, but here's what I do know about picking strawberries...

- Pick strawberries when they are a deep red color (they won't really ripen off the plant like some other fruits).

- To prevent bruising snap the stem above the berry.

- Handle strawberries carefully, as they bruise easily.
