Fresh Strawberries: Gardening Rewards the Patient

Look what we picked this morning before the sun got too hot...mmmmmm. Fresh strawberries smell so delicious and I can hardly stand to wait to wash them before I pop them into my mouth.

"Of all the blossoms that clothe our open fields, one of the prettiest is that of the wild strawberry. And yet so influenced is man by his stomach that he seldom heeds this flower except as a promis of a crop of strawberries."
Handbook of Nature Study, page 608
More on strawberries and how to include them in your nature study are found on pages 608-610 of the Handbook of Nature Study.

Gardening brings such sweet rewards.
