Homegrown Organic Strawberries Worth the Effort June 8, 2013 0 Flares 0 Flares × Our Organically Grown Strawberries Fresh, local, organic! Don’t you love getting food just the way you want it from your own garden? Strawberries fresh for the picking have been worth the wait at our house this year. We’ve been picking and eating pint after pint of the fresh fruit. We have an established garden of perennial strawberry plants now, so it should be fun to tend them now from year to year. We shared our share of struggles with you, from getting the ground conditions dry enough to fending off pests with a variety of natural methods. While I can’t tell you it will always be easy to grow your own strawberries, I can tell you it’s worth the effort!
