Pick Strawberries Day

May 20th is Pick Strawberries Day!

Have you ever picked strawberries before? I have when I was a kid. My grandmother actually had a little strawberry patch growing in her yard. It was a fun experience to pick them and then she’d turn them into all kinds of sweet treats.

My favorite is still to just dice up strawberries and let them sit in sugar in the fridge. It makes a really sweet syrup with fruit and tastes great over angel cakes or home made waffles. Its not really healthy but it is yummy!

Strawberries will be one thing grown in our garden once we get it started. They are just so easy to grow and sure beats all the ones purchased at a store for high prices and chemicals.
