Say Strawberry, John.....


"Why should I waste words."

This morning I picked enough for lunch from my little plot. The Free Press says that Michigan strawberries are ready and excellent this year. I have seldom missed a year going out to pick , and thinking back, I was out picking the day that John Michael's mother was born. And I took all my children when they were little and some of the grandchildren too. I have also dragged along reluctant friends from time to time.

Who knows ..maybe John Michael and I will pick in a couple of years.

I loved picking strawberries with you! Now I go to the Apple Barn, which is nice, but not nearly the same as picking with my mom when I was a little girl. love love

I love fresh strawberries but haven't had any this year. When I was a teen a bunch of us in the neighborhood would always spend some days picking strawberries and get paid for it. It was fun then, but now I'm not so sure my back could take it.
