My favorite fruit has always been strawberries, so naturally I grow them at home. I grew up with them in my garden and remember eating them all summer as a child. I loved picking them fresh and having a little treat right there without having to go inside. Strawberry is my favorite flavor in most candies and flavored drinks, etc. I love it!
Two years ago I planted 5 strawberry plants in my back yard and they have spread to about a 4 ft. by 12 ft. area. We already have tons of strawberries, and now my kids love to go out and pick them. Nothing better on a hot summer day, or an extremely rainy summer day in our case this year, than fresh strawberries from the garden!
