Weekly Photo Challenge – Fleeting

First Strawberries of the Season

First Strawberries of the Season

When I inspected the garden this morning, here’s what I found! Sweet and delicious, these little babies ripen quickly, and the plants produce for only a few days. Hence, my interpretation for “Fleeting.”

      I don’t know what variety they are, Weebs. A client brought me the plants about three years ago. Are you familiar with the way strawberries send out shoots (or maybe they’re called rhizomes) with babies growing on the ends? She takes small pots of soil and roots those babies out in her garden. Then she just snips off the umbilical cord and voila! New plants. She brought me about a dozen and they have flourished and spread since.

      Thanks, Brigitte! Have you ever made strawberry pie? I have an amazing recipe. I don’t grow enough in my little garden to make a pie, but I will buy a couple of quarts and do that every now and then. Delish!

    Gotta love strawberries … especially when grown at home. Do you dip them in chocolate?

    • Cathy Ulrich says:

      No, Frank. While they look big in the photo (I used my macro lens) they’re only about thumbnail sized. So they’ll end up on top of pancakes with a little whipped cream. But they’re so sweet and intense in flavor, they’ll hold up well to that. Hope you’re having a great weekend!

    Beautiful picture of the strawberries. It’s not something I would think of as fleeting, but I can understand your explanation. We got some really big ones here, and looking at them, I thought they would be attractive but turn out to be tasteless. Strangely enough, though, they were delicious.

  27. Cathy! I can’t decide which is more amazing – your photo or the fact that you found these beauties from your garden!! Wonderful! Enjoy every single morsel. Sharon

  33. Sorry that I somehow missed this post. Your strawberries look like they’re bursting with flavor, Cathy! The ones I recently bought at my market taste like lumps of wool

      These really are tasty, V. I know, a lot of the ones available at the market are completely devoid of flavor. We ate them yesterday on pancakes with whipped cream. A great way to celebrate Sunday! Hope your weekend was a good one.
