There’s nothing quite like strawberry picking. The warm sun shines on the fields. Reds and greens fill your sight. You find the biggest, juiciest strawberries you’ve ever seen, and fill a bucket or basket. Juice gets all over your hands, but you don’t care. Anticipation for eating the delicious fruit is almost unbearable. Anticipation for strawberry pies, jams and shortcake.
