The First Harvest

The muddy garden caked my flip-flops with a layer of mud as thick as their soles.  Each step made a sucking, slurping sound as I rounded the patch.   Bits of red peeked out at me, calling me to part the tall green leaves and pluck the ripe, fresh fruit from the plant.  I am grateful for the first harvest of the garden this year – strawberries!strawberry-harvest.jpg
