Yup, just one – actually I had 2. I ate them both.
This was from 2 baby plants which I migrated from the (former) house site in town to the forest. I haven’t quite decided where to put them yet but there are a lot of pine trees where they would be happy – just trying to find the right combination of enough sun and a self perpetuating pine needle bed so that I won’t have to do any work.

What a beautiful photo of a strawberry. I love this accessory fruit (sometimes called false fruit, spurious fruit) in many forms especially ice cream and jam.

It is snowing outside today so you can just imagine how delicious and perfect your strawberry looks to me. There are already strawberries showing up in our grocery store brought in from miles and miles away….. I walk past and refuse to make eye contact because although they may look red and tasty, they never come even close to the mouth-watering taste of a sun-ripened, freshly picked strawberry and unless they are organic (hard to find) they are a heavy-pesticide use commercial crop. I can definitely wait until May.
