Daily Haibun, June 22nd – The joy of growing things

I definitely don’t have green fingers. I’m the worst at keeping indoor plants alive. Constantly forgetting to water and nourish.

Outdoor is another thing. Because in the garden grows things to eat. Chives, ruccola and salad. Rhubarb and several kinds of berries.

Today I picked the first homegrown strawberries of the year. Just one each. But they were surprisingly big for first berries. And tasted sweet as only sun ripe strawberries can.

Wether sun or rain
When the strawberries ripens
Summer has begun

  1. I hear you! We probably have 3 more weeks before the blackberries begin to ripen. The wild strawberries are already ripe, but are so small that they are best left for the birds and small animals.
