The taste of spring

Or maybe I should say, the taste of late spring.  Hubby and I went up to feed the catfish in the pond. I said I wanted to check on the strawberries and he said he had one yesterday. I have 2 varieties, Sparkle and I think Honeycomb or something like that. Heirloom variety, not the kind you buy at Wally World. You know what I'm saying about Wally Worlds berries; pretty but no flavor. I love my berries but don't think I'll get very many this year. The patch is getting over taken by weeds. I pull them and twice as many come back. The tame blackberry plants don't look they are doing well either. But so far the wild blackberries are covered in blooms and young green berries. Hope I get some nice blackberries this year. Last year was pitiful!
