Strawberry Season

I have been picking strawberries for a few days, fresh from the garden. This year the berrys are larger, plumper and more abundant than they have have been in the past. And they are much EARLIER too~!! Heavens gift to berry lovers. My berry patch is heavily netted to keep the birds out but the chipmunks have managed to get in and eat their fill every day. I have fed 6 adults with my berrys and I imagine the chips have fed dozens with their stolen berry loot as well. There is enough for all, thanks to the heavy winter snow, the torential spring rain, good composted manure and careful weeding.
