Our local strawberries are in now and I bought 2 pounds of these wonderful berries, ripened on the vines for $2.48 this week.
When I was 12 my parents were so cruel to me, they made me PICK STRAWBERRIES.. I thought they were cruel, but I paid them back by eating one and putting one in my basket and on and on....and they were FREE.. they also made me pick wild blackberries... Now I wish I had access to them
(I also had to pick tomatoes, beans, peas and dig potatoes.. and shell them, peel them and shuck corn.)
Strawberries are a big deal here, we even have a Queen and her court and I am not in that photo... how could that happen?
This is the link to our Florida Strawberry Festival if you would like to see all the fun they have. It is about an hour drive from us.
ADDING AN UPDATE... I just went to visit Molly The Wally and am ROFLMAO... if you need a laugh visit her today.
