Tiny, colorful explosions of summer flavor, berries have captivated the imaginations of hungry mammals like us for millennia. Nowadays it’s easy to grab a pint of strawberries from the produce section any time of year, but why not try growing your own? Even shady corners [1] of your yard can support some types of berries, you’ll avoid nasty pesticides, and get the experience of popping a sun-warmed berry into your mouth right off the vine or bush!
