It's strawberry time

The strawberries are here in full force. Oh, we get strawberries from elsewhere throughout the year - Mexico, California - but there's nothing quite like the local "Hood" strawberries. The flavor is incomparable. And so I spent about an hour tonight preparing strawberries for the freezer and for tomorrow. It's Independence Day here and that means lots of firecrackers going off and lots of barbeques. But not for us. We'll be spending a simple day with fried chicken and fresh strawberry shortcake for desert. And we'll probably spend a little bit of time in the greenhouses too...but it is a holiday.
And part of the time will be spent on the deck sipping a nice cold summer drink...
