I am thankful my son shares the same love of strawberries that I have. His love for the ripe, red fruit may even be a bit stronger than mine. He couldn't control himself when we went to pick. He may have picked 2 to put in our gallon to take home but ate all the others he picked. He must have eaten 20 strawberries. I'm not kidding. We had a blast and couldn't quit laughing the whole time. These are the most beautiful, perfect strawberries I have EVER seen. (and I have picked them for many many years. ask my mom ) They taste like they have been dipped in sugar straight off the vine!
