Strawberry Season by miraries

Strawberry Season

Visited a friend's strawberry farm on the way home from the city yesterday. So peaceful & far from the hustle & bustle of the city we've just been to.

We've had a lot of rain so the strawberries have been slow but are now picking up. Tony & Ada are Italian immigrants who have been in the farm since they came to Australia in the early '50's. Now in their late' 70's they still help with packing the strawbs.

I picked one & bit into it & the sweet juices just oozed out. The taste of strawberries just fresh picked is so different from the ones you buy in the supermarkets. Needless to say we went home with a gift of half a dozen punnets. That will be dessert with vanilla ice cream tonight when the family comes over for dinner.

Thanks everyone for your comments- really appreciate it. Now I have to start getting ready for that dinner for 8 prepared in our RV!
Mmmm...!
