Strawberries: 3rd Picking

We picked our 3rd batch of Strawberries today. The Rains delayed our picking, so we lost a few. We picked about 4 gallons today. Each of the last 2 pickings yielded just about the same, making the total so far about 12 Gallons. We should have 1 more picking, assuming all goes well.

Melanie dried Strawberries and I made 11 more Strawberry Spreads. We have all the Frozen Strawberries that we need for the year.

I find it hard to believe that after all those years of eating Strawberries we bought from the Grocery Store, that we now have our own Patch. Somehow, those Strawberries from the Grocery Store are nowhere close to the same as those we have in our very own Patch.
