Fresh & Local Strawberries


Strawberries have been ripe for pickin' for the past few weeks now, but we've been out of town a lot and haven't had to time to get some.  There are two different farm stands nearby that sell them freshly-picked every day.  I've been yearning for them every time we drive by, and yesterday Clara and I finally stopped to pick some up.

They are seriously the best strawberries I've ever tasted.  I never want to eat store bought strawberries again.  They are so juicy, when you take a bite.. juice just runs down your hand.  And they're so sweet, no sugar is necessary!  There's absolutely nothing like a freshly picked strawberry!

Seriously.  Look at the beautiful color of these babies.  I love strawberries.  I bought a whole flat of them.. last night we had chocolate covered strawberries (YUM) and today I'm going to make strawberry pie.  And then of course, just snacking on some as is.. and probably freezing a few!

Clara liked to look at them.  And hold them.  And carry them around.  Then she took a bite.. and gave it back to me.  What child does not like strawberries?  She used to like them.. oh well, she can stick with her apples and bananas - more for me!  Haha.
