Wild strawberries ♥ My All time favorite! As a child I used to pick them in the mountain-forests in Süd Tirol (Italy) while taking long and beautiful hikes with my family (my dad used to wonder why my mom and I were so slow to finish the hike... he always looked passed the berries and we were stuffed full)
Wild strawberries - Although small and hard to find, these berries are well worth the search. They are bursting with flavour and best eaten straight from the plant. They can be found on grassy banks and in open woodland, low on the ground. The leaves are grouped in threes and are toothed and shiny.

Growing Wild Strawberries: I thought the taste of them was far superior to anything you buy at the store. Just don't get too excited and pick them early, let them get ripe (just pry the little animals don't get them first).
alpine strawberries (started my seed cups 03/20/2013... the grandkids wanted me to try growing some. We have a lot of squirrels, chipmunks and birds, so we'll see what they leave us to harvest, LOL! ~ kj)
