Yummy Strawberries!

Our strawberries are finally ready!
We picked some today and thought we'd show them to you.
They are so tasty. :)

Here's Lilly. Notice the strawberry juice on her face?
You know Katie had something to do with that.

This is one of our blueberry bushes.
As you can see, the berries aren't ripe yet,
but it won't be long!

Hope you're all having a good week. :)

Take care,


  1. Hey Melanie!

    There wouldn't be a strawberry left in your garden if my son was there! He LOVES strawberries! I bought some for him at Sams yesterday. I also bought him some blueberries too! He loves all berries!

    Have a Great Day!

  2. oh YUM!

    Do you guys have a full garden? I would love to have one one of these days. That is so cool. Can't wait to see the blueberries!

  3. How cool is that - you have your own strawberries and blueberries! I need some strawberries from the store tomorrow.

    Wish I had some of yours - they look good.


  4. Those strawberries sure are yummy! I love strawberries!

    And, yes, I had something to do with it. (guilty smile) I was joking around and threw a strawberry at her.

    Katie :)

  5. Melanie! That is wonderful! How exciting to be eating your own strawberries! (alas, we have no strawberries around here) I do enjoy your blog, even when I don't post a comment. Things have been crazy around here lately, maybe since it doesn't get dark til later we are just going tooooo much!

  6. Oh those look yummy

  7. Your strawberries look so delicious and how wonderful to have blueberry bushes! Yum.
    I hope you're having a great week too.



  8. how fun to have strawberries and blueberries growing on your property, Melanie! yum! I bet the strawberries are really delicious :) I love fresh strawberries with vanilla ice cream (and I wonder why I'm always on a diet :)



  9. I love strawberries, and yours looks delicous! Enjoy them... :)

  10. Been a long time since I have had my own strawberries....its a joy to grow your own food...some times you can't do what you would like anymore...keep up the hard work as long as you can. Trish

  11. Thanks Melanie for the prayers. I did come by earlier but I didn't leave a comment only had a couple of min. oh the strawberries look so yummy! We have only a couple of things left at the old house now and my rabbits. Then we are done! Praise God. Again thanks for your prayers for the ministry. We need to raise lots of money this weekend!
    Hope your weekend is Blessed

  12. I have had a pretty good week so for. However, it would be much nicer if I had a big bowl of those strawberries.

  13. It's time to start a garden? I'm always behind

  14. Hello Melanie~your strawberries look so delicious!! My husband grew a very small patch of strawberries last year. We ate them all in one day! Your blueberries should be delicious, too. They are loaded with antioxidants and especially when they are fresh from your own garden and not shipped to you from Chile! Enjoy,Rose

  15. Yummy:-) I bought some strawberries at a local farmer's market last week and oh my goodness what a difference in flavor!! They were wonderful:-)

    I'm a bit envious that you'll have both strawberries AND blueberries right in your yard.


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. I enjoy hearing from you. :-)
