The first strawberries are beginning to grow – Yay!

Finally, after a lot of weeding and watering, I can see strawberries begin to grow.

If the flowers grow with a yellow middle, that means the flower will produce a strawberry, and if they have a brown middle, then no strawberry will be produced.

Thankfully, most of the flowers I can see have lovely yellow middles!
