The Fruits of Summer

I have been anxiously anticipating the first strawberries of summer to ripen up. This morning I checked a few that were looking close yesterday. I decided one was ready and I could wait no longer.

So here it is, the first strawberry from the back yard.

Invitingly Red. If you flip it over, it's still got some ripening left to do, but I'm not going to let that stop me.

With strawberries from the store, they aren't very sweet if they are still white-ish, but when you pick them yourself, they are plenty sweet at this point. Um, ya, plenty sweet! YUM!

I wish I could share one with you-in fact, why don't you come visit and try it for yourself? ;)
