For the love of strawberries…

strawberry6

He was so excited!! This year he gets to tend and care for his own plant.

He picked a strawberry plant!

He planted his plant in a big pot.

His dad gave him a little shovel and he filled it himself.

Everyday he went out to check on it to see how it was doing.

A couple times he got himself in trouble because he was sneaking out of the house

and not telling Mom where he was off too – to check on the progress.

He would talk sweetly to his plant

Hey little strawberry plant how you doing today?

He told people he got a strawberry plant so that he could share with his family (so sweet!)

Then he got his first fully ripe strawberry and boy was that an exciting moment

  1. Nothing ever tastes quite so good as something you’ve grown yourself, especially when you have to wait so long to savour. A lesson to us all that the small things in life really are some of the most beautiful.
