Strawberries Everywhere!

As most of you know, I live in Las Vegas.  Yes, it's hot. Yes, it's windy. Yes, our dirt has NO nutrients in it to grow anything and Yes, I'm not a gardener.  However, for some reason my garden seems to flourish every year.  You might remember my post last summer about my Basil harvest here.  
Lots and Lots of Pesto!  

My strawberry plants didn't do very well last year so I wasn't going to do anything with them this year.  And then this happened-


It's so funny that when I posted this pictured yesterday on Facebook majority of my Vegas friends were in disbelief and thought I bought them.  Those silly friends. {how I love them}

These plants are from last year and came back twice as strong this year literally overnight.  So this is the lesson in patience. {insert the rolling eyes from my children}


And no Garden is complete without Wine!

Yep, those are grapes......


Have a great Monday!

LOVE LOVE LOVE it :) It reminds me when I was a little girl (back in Russia) we had so called a strawberry garden. Every other evening we were harvest around 10 pounds of those "handmade" berry's thank you for the nice memory
