It's strawberry season! There's something for everyone on our U-pick outings to Whitted Bowers Farm - pastoral scenes, juicy fruit to taste, a friendly farm dog, fresh air and refreshing breezes, a rock for jumping, a healthy back workout, and the sweet anticipation of the many ways we will enjoy our berries when we get home - jam! with whipped cream! dipped in chocolate! on a cake! So many possibilities.

When you're picking strawberries, everything seems right with the world, don't you think? The fruit itself must have magical, soul-healing properties. If a two year-old or thirty year-old feels out-of-sorts, nothing need be done but pop a strawberry in a pouty mouth and that mouth's edges turn right back up again. Yummm.
