Strawberries

Have you ever wondered where your food comes  from. I don’t mean what supermarket or farm it came from, but the literal sense of the word. I think it is always interesting to see the development of plants and even more so those that we eat.

Strawberries are cultivated worldwide for their sweetness, colour, and texture.

First the plant must begin to grow until it can produce flowers.

The pollen of these flowers are taken care of by pollinator insects which help the plant develop fruit.

The plant then grows fruit buds which over time and under the right conditions develop into ripe fruit.

This is the final product and attracts the eyes, nose, and taste glands of animals and humans alike.

About The Pal Guy

Ever since the moment I got my first camera I was bit by the “shutter-bug”. My love of nature has become a constant theme of my photography along with architecture, sights and destinations.

  1. Beautiful Photographs…

  2. Yummy! There’s nothing better than strawberries fresh off the vine.

  3. Great pictures and text that create a mindful practice about strawberries. I love to hear my students discuss where food comes from. The rural ones recognize the source as someone’s garden or a farm; the town students are not sure beyond Safeway.

    • Thank you very much. We must be aware of where our food comes from and how it actually grows so that we do not become desensitized to the so very important world of agriculture.
