It happened we picked our first, and so far only, red ripe strawberry!
Here she is before the pickin'. Notice all her soon to be picked friends.
And the garden finally got it's nice new blanket of alfalfa this weekend.
When you have two kiddos both wanting to pick the first red ripe strawberry. What's a mom to do? Yep, you guessed it! I picked it. Then each took turns carrying it back to the house. Where I used my surgeon like hands to cut the strawberry into exact halves. Thus, insuring that they each had an equal bite of our first red ripe strawberry.
We couldn't help but think of one of our favorite books. The kids and I love The Little Mouse , The Red Ripe Strawberry, and The Big Hungry Bear. If you haven't read it yet check it out this summer.
