In cream, shortcake, daiquiris, smoothies, granola or all by themselves, strawberries add the sweet taste of summer itself. They're as colorful as they are delicious. Did you know they're the only fruit to grow seeds on the outside? Or that they're actually a member of the rose family? All true. So if you want to encourage someone to eat well and become hooked on gardening, suggest planting a patch, or pot, of strawberries. Strawberries are among the easiest and most rewarding plants gardeners grow.
