Pick N' Pay Strawberries

Plump red strawberries are ripening in the fields. Who can resist locally grown fruit, which always seems to taste better than supermarket produce? Not these two! And not me, either. And this year we've had sufficient rain to ensure juicy berries.
Did you know each plant can produce one quart of berries? Trouble is, they don’t ripen all at once.

This is a well-kept field with straw between the rows, keeping pickers' knees and shoes clean as well as the strawberries.
Don't these berries look scrumptious? Yep, they were. Sadly, they're gone already. We had the strawberries on waffles.

Hmmm. Maybe I should go and pick some more. ;-)

Pick a basket for me while you are there! I haven't had a decent strawberry this year.

It was Strawberry Festival in Stouffville this weekend... and I ate far too many, but they are SOOOOO delish!
I'll be picking strawberries for jam later this week.

YUMMEEEE!!!
It was burlington Berry Days and Marysville Berry Fest all last week. Those are two town I live in between. I also have a daughter that lives in Burlington and one in Marysville.
You are right--there is nothing like a frest, home (farm) grown berry. MB
