Praise the lord and run to the grocery store nearest you—strawberry season is officially upon us!
When Chris and I walked into the produce department yesterday, we were both IMMEDIATELY drawn—like moths to a flame—to a cart piled high with baskets and baskets of strawberries. Plump, juicy berries that looked decidedly different from the pale, sour impostors that have been filling the shelves since September. These beauties, from McLeod Farms right down the road, were shiny and deep red, with a delicately sweet scent that you could smell from practically across the whole store.
The season’s first batch of strawberries is HERE, and it is glorious.
