Greeting From The Happy Land of Strawberries

After many weeks of green we have found ourselves with quite the harvest.  These aren't just any variety of strawberry though, they are "Fragola Quattro Stagioini" or four season alpine strawberries.  The seeds I planted were imported from Italy,  and they really are four season, I will continue to harvest these tiny babies until late november mid-december, and the plants themselves will be peaking up through the snow, even in march.  Their leaves hold an impressive amount of vitamin C and can be brewed as a restorative tea, but the berries are amazing, more tart than sweet, and teeny tiny, they put the modern day hybrids to shame!
