They’re few, but they’re mine!

This is my first harvest of strawberries from my little potted strawberry plant sitting on my balcony.

I enjoy apartment living. I’m not sure what I’d do with a whole garden! But I have a few potted plants on my balcony that bring me endless happiness. I enjoy going outside to water them, plucking off the dead blooms of my flowers, and watching new strawberries develop and ripen.

My family likes having some color out there, but they don’t really care about the flowers. Or the strawberries. They’re mine.

So far, these berries have been a little sour, but I’m not giving up on them! I’ll either cover them in sugar, or just wait for them to sweeten up.

We all need a little pocket of quiet to enjoy in our days. What do you use? Maybe you’ll enjoy some of my books-sweet stories with heart, family, and falling in love. And the food–every book I write has food I love!

Don’t miss out on my free novellas Harlequin has published. I currently have four free novellas available, and they can be found at the bottom of my Books page.

Happy reading!

  1. I was curious, so I looked it up. “Beds should be located where they receive at least eight hours of sunlight, which is essential for producing sweet strawberries. In addition, be sure your strawberry plants have adequate space to grow. There should be at least 12 inches (31 cm.) between plants. Overcrowded plants are more prone to produce smaller yields of sour strawberries.” › edible › fruits › strawberry › sweet-strawberries.htm

    1. I do have it in a full sunlight area, so fingers crossed they sweeten up with time! We’ll see!

Your comments make me feel warm and fuzzy. Seriously!
