The farmer planted beautiful strawberry plants two years ago. The first year just as the strawberries began to ripen the deer wiped them out, plants and all. The second year the farmer enclosed the bed which kept them from eating all of them. However, they would push their head under the fencing and nibble around the edges. But we still didn't get any strawberries. He didn't cover them with bird netting and in the matter of a few days all berries were gone.
This year the farmer had success. Those plants were covered so well it is a wonder the sun could get to the berries. But look how beautiful those plants are!
This is what I picked tonight. It is hard to beat a great Oregon strawberry.
So for dinner we fixed a wilted lettuce and bacon salad like my mom used to make using fresh lettuce from our garden and our own fresh eggs. So good. This followed by a bowl of those sweet strawberries.
And just because I want to remember this dogwood outside my office building I had to take a picture. The dogwoods this year have had beautiful full blooms.
Now this made me smile. I could watch this over and over. What a great couple.
