Yeah. You're obviously familiar with the realities. The ones in the supermarkets and even in some outdoor markets are often large, and they usually have a crisp white core - a crisp, white, tasteless core that makes up most of each berry, I should have said. That type lasts a long time before going over-ripe and mushy. So the markets like them. But, growing your own at home, you can pick and eat soon after. So... emm, smaller berry maybe... but three or four times the flavor!Those look so good! I bet they actually have taste, unlike those big red imitation strawberry-like things at the store.
Joel, those are just perfect!!! Will you please enter that pic into the P of the W? Makes my mouth water to just look at them.Our seasons are running a little late this year... maybe three weeks. But one of the joys of late spring and early summer here rests in a bowl like this.

I guess I haven't usually taken pics of strawberries, but a couple weeks back I did shoot this one (first pick of this year). Mmmm-mm! We eat some fresh, but wind up freezing a lot of the annual crop and have them until the following year's crop shows up.
