Hood Strawberries


My first Strawberry harvest of the season! They are a variety called Hood, local here in Oregon. Some people refuse to eat Strawberries until the first Hoods come into season and now I understand why. Wow! they taste amazing. It’s nothing to do with my growing technique just a good variety at home in the Portland climate.

    Really pretty and delicious looking strawberries and since they are the first one, I am sure you must have had a nice time gorging on them.

    They look great, you can’t beat the first few strawberries of the year.
    I don’t normally get a looking as my 2daughters eat them all!

    Great stuff. They’re a good bit earlier than we can hope for back in blighty!

    If the nurseries in your area sell the variety “Albion,” give them a try. They are sweet and have a very good flavor. They are grown mostly in California.
