Free Range Strawberries

Our modest strawberry patch is prolific this year with the sweetest, juiciest, most flavorful strawberries I can remember. We started enjoying them a little over a week ago but these past few days they have really been putting on a show.  We gather a "mess" of fresh berries almost every evening.  We can not possibly eat them all and we have given some away. Usually the deer get ours before we have a chance to enjoy them but not this year for some unknown reason.  Jennifer says we have had strawberries this good once before back when we first built our house.  But that is beyond my ability to recall.  Regardless, it is a wonderful treat to have something so delicious and good for you and so fresh awaiting every day when you get home. Another simple wonder of country life.
