You win - I ate it!

Well guys, thanks for the advice.  I followed it all except for making Chris eat half, because he doesn't even like strawberries that professional strawberry-growers grow, so I didn't subject him to the one that I grew.

I picked it and sliced it in half first to check the consistency on the inside...

It looked pretty decent, despite its size, so I decided to give it a shot.  I was definitely a little hesitant at first, but decided to brave it.
It was pretty decent!  Definitely good for my first attempt, but not as good as the strawberries grown by other experienced growers.  I haven't keeled over yet, so I would say successful first attempt :)
