Real strawberries and not so real ones

Posted on: July 1, 2011

When we moved in to our house, there was a small patch of strawberries growing in the garden against the garage.  Unfortunately, there were a couple of large trees in our neighbour’s yard overshadowing the little garden patch, so after trying to grow vegetables in that area, I finally gave up and decided to go the container gardening route and let the strawberries go wild.  Well, after 6 years, the small patch now spans the width of our one car garage.  This week, I picked one large bowlful of strawberries every day.  You can’t find anything more local than your own backyard.

As an ode to my plentiful strawberry patch that has made my children and me quite happy this week, I knit up a set of toy strawberries with crocheted calix.  Here are photos of the real thing and the not so real ones. 😉  Can you tell the difference?
