The Strawberries are Blooming!





I planted an all new strawberry patch last summer, in a never before used raised planting bed. Last week there were two hard frosts, 27 & 29 degrees. I was so worried that the strawberry flowers were destroyed. My worries are over now, the plants are full of blooms. The promise of the fruit, the beautiful red, ripened in the sun...yum, nothing is better than picking strawberries in the garden...and eaten right there.  I want to make strawberry topped dessert!! I need a good recipe for the strawberry syrup!
