A Better Berry

A friend of ours, Joan, is redoing the garden in her front yard and invited us to take many of the plants in it now. She had many beautiful perennials and a truckload of strawberries in the garden. We have a garden on the south side of our house of which about half we don’t use. Eunice and I were both excited to fill in the back half with strawberry plants and we did. I felt well enough to extend the fencing (to keep the rabbits out) and help plant the strawberries. Joan told us they spread like crazy and we didn’t need to cram them in. We crammed them in. My mother loved strawberries. She told me once that God could have made a better berry, but never did. Not sure where she got that but I agree.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie We also have rhubarb in the garden and I’m looking forward to a homegrown, homemade strawberry-rhubarb pie next spring. Eunice makes a delicious pie. The key is to roll out the pie dough very thin.
