The strawberries have been slow to produce this year. They are among my top three favorite crops, if not my favorite. And I savor and hoard them more than the others, including the raspberries and blackberries. I started seven new rows of bare root strawberries this year and they should be producing as soon as the weather cools from our 95-degree temperatures. In the meantime, my five existing rows are finally producing nicely. I am sure that I will be ready to share some with others in a few weeks.
I am having better luck with my new macro lens these days if I limit my shots to the controlled environment of in the photo cube. I feel a future series of garden portraits coming on in the next few weeks/month as the major harvest starts to overtake my kitchen.
