    It's the short strawberry season. It must be the cultivar, it's work to pick them and do some prep but one of those foods where nothing in mass or commercial distribution compares.

    @getbent got me going with the ice cream topic. My lunch ended with a meringue, berries, vanilla ice cream and nice tea. Now there's a teenager with body clock running almost 8 hours later than parents doing pancakes and strawberries.

    Seasonal eats are reasons to live and for hope in this house. You can't be too sad when berries pass knowing peak tomato and sweet corn are coming. We just picked our little cherry tree - another reminder of time without looking at calendar or watch.

    strawberries , cherries nectarines and peaches are all on sale at my store right now , but its funny because any one who lives in Kamloops ever buy these things because we all have trees in our back yards 2 apricot and 1 cherry in mine , any thing more than that is bear attractant , which drives my dog nuts, LOL

    I love strawberries. Where I grew up, we had wild strawberries, a source of great joy in my childhood. But I love the ones that you grow on purpose, too.
