Yesterday was a gorgeous day in southern Maine especially for strawberry picking. Last week was the start of Strawberry Season in Maine and my sister, Connie and her husband Russ and I went to Fairwinds Farm in Bowdoinham for some red berries. It didn't take long before we picked about 8 lbs of strawberries each. At that point it was hard to stop because I kept finding some that were bigger than the ones I had already picked. Now I am ready for the 4th of July and desert will be Strawberry Shortcake!! Yum!
Better than the supermarkets!
I might have to go back at the end of the week to pick some more to freeze for the winter. Can't have too many strawberries!!
