June 17, 2013 – Strawberries

While they are a bit late this year, the wet spring has insured a full strawberry crop this year.

In fact, it seems like for this week or so they are somewhat like children in that they are responsible for how we spend our time. They must be picked and then moved on – moved on to the freezer, the dehydrator, made into shortcake, passed on to others. I’m sure after the glut is over, they will once again become a welcome sight.
