We're picking lots of things these days: peas, beans, Swiss chard, spinach, lettuce, zucchini, beets, Evans cherries (good for tarts and pies). We also have some fantastic strawberries to enjoy for breakfast lately. These monsters formed part of our fruit salad this morning. Do you know how good fresh homegrown strawberries are? They almost seem like a different fruit from the ones you buy in the supermarket, just as homegrown tomatoes completely outshine anything available in a regular grocery store. Perhaps if you have a farmer's market available you can find some wonderful freshly picked produce, but, really, nothing equals something just picked in your own garden!
