You can call me Strawberry Shortcake

I love fresh fruits. There is nothing better then eating fresh, in season fruit. In fact, I love fruit so much, I can often times make myself sick eating so much. Particularly with cherries, raspberries, and blueberries. But we are not going to discuss that here. My dream goal is to have my own supply of these fruits. Slowly but surely I will get there!

This year, I've got a strawberry patch I'm going to be working hard at to get to produce fruit. I planted a bunch of strawberries last year, but they got weed infested and there were these very irritating slugs who ate every strawberry that came close to maturing.

I also did Bloomsday about 3 weeks ago. It was my first ever Bloomsday. It was great! I hope to make it a yearly event if I can.

Other then that, nothing too exciting is going on. Jeremy continues …
