Strawberries - Wild tasty treats - "heart berries" While watering a garden
I am grateful to already be tasting the fruits of the labors and planting and tending gardens. Here at Karen Anderson's garden in Minnetonka, where I have been tending, weeding, contracting rock edges and all over the years, since 2002, these are some small treats I enjoyed yesterday, between moving the sprinklers around Karen's various gardens. Named strawberry in English, I tend to prefer the American Indian name "heart berry" and these tasty plant people, remind me to connect my heart with Ina Maka, Mother Earth - from whence our bodies come and to which we all will return some day. Thanks for the harvest. Peace love and joy, each day a new beginning. YUM!
