the first of the summer berries

I got these strawberry plants from my sister in law just this year. They have been planted in the raised garden bed and are now producing abundantly.
I dont know what variety they are but they are an heirloom variety and they grew from my sister in laws original plantings. They grew so well she had to thin them out and I received lots of plants.
I even tasted one while I was watering them and even though it wasnt completely ripe, it was so sweet. No need to add sugar to these babies.
see ya

Hello Angela
They look good enough to eat lol
I'm late with everything this year and at the rate I'm going I doubt that anything is going be in the ground at all. Well I suppose one good thing is I'll keep the local grrengrocer in business
Your Molly looks a funny one - is she good on the farm - earn her keep?
Take care

Delicious looking strawberries. We are preparing for Winter but I'm already going trough seed catalogs and dreaming about next years garden.
