An Ode to Strawberries

One of my favorite childhood memories is of picking strawberries from our strawberry patch and eating them, warm from the sun and deliciously juicy on a hot summer day. I don't have a strawberry patch now so I have to resort to buying my fresh fruit from the grocery store. I love this time of year because strawberries are so much cheaper than any other time and I will buy them at every trip to the store. The inspiration for this post is this little guy, whom I am calling Big Daddy.

This is seriously the biggest strawberry I have ever seen! That is my hand.

I showed him to Dustin and so we had to measure him. Yep. 4 inches.

Pretty crazy, huh?
