So here is today's story from yesterday that I found so funny and ironic at the same time. I even have pictures to share with you.
As you know, we have been oohing and aahing over our strawberries that were planted in early spring and in particular have been watching the very first one grow and ripen. Yesterday morning before swim lessons I quickly ran outside to take a picture of this first berry of ours, as it's been a continual question as to who(s) gets to eat it.
Delectable right? Let's progress on to evening and Hunter runs outside to take a gander at this berry and he comes tromping back inside and says that there is a bite out of our berry! So agape and aghast, we ALL rush out the door to look at our poor berry and sure enough there is a bite missing! We are pointing our fingers at the squirrel population in our neighborhood.
Well, I decide to pull it off anyway and bring it inside and figure if I wash it and cut off the bitten end that we could all still enjoy our first berry, right?
Such a sad ending to our story though. Kevin yells from the other room, "Don't eat it! We don't know what kind of animal ate it and we don't know what kind of diseases that animal could have had."
First berry not to be enjoyed at all and off to the compost it went!
Until next time.
