This is how I currently manage to take the girls into the garden. I load up the double-seater wagon grandma got us, and we head out. The strawberries are a big hit, as the girls can never seem to get enough. Luckily, strawberries are incredibly healthy in addition to being delicious. Of course, the organic, home-grown, warm-from-the-sun, just-picked version is the best.


The slugs are horrible this year because of the wet spring. For every strawberry I pick to eat, there are probably 10 or 15 that have been partially snacked on by the slugs. But, the plants produce such an abundance of berries and have spread so enthusiastically that I don’t really mind sharing.
