It’s strawberry season! Today Terry O’Brien brought us a quart of those berries from Young’s Farm, and they were all completely red, ripe, and succulent. I ate some with cream, but the cream taste dominated, so I finished the pint that I ate as they were, just washed. There is something about Creation that entices.
We’ve had California strawberries from the supermarket, but compared to these berries they’re hard, 75% ripe and not as tasty. Local berries take the prize. Come and see how God intended them to be!
Sometimes we call them Nature at its best. Nature, of course, is the generic name for things and beings grown as close to the original as we can get it. We love to see growing things at their perfection, including humans undeformed by crime or wrong doing.
