I know for a lot of my internet buddies strawberry season is already just a sweet memory or fast coming to a close. For us, it's just beginning. But because of spring rains and grey skies I expect this berry season will be an especially short one.
Today is opening day at the local u-pick (the berries in the photo are from the farmers market). Take a guess where I am this morning?
I'm savoring summer in one of the most delicious ways I know. With an early morning berry picking session.
Berries destined for eating fresh. A whole household of family members in and out of my mother's kitchen. Not able to resist these mouthwatering, juicy, sweet berries.
Berries destined for strawberry shortcake. A celebration dessert fitting for a Canada Day weekend.
And if we're lucky, berries destined for the freezer. That is, if any berries remain after family and friends have enjoyed them fresh.
Here's a few strawberry related posts from previous summers:
