Strawberries are by far my favourite fruit. I eat them on their own, in smoothies, with ice cream, cake, served with whipped cream or dipped in chocolate....I just love them.
Buying them at the grocery store is ok, but there is nothing quite like berries picked fresh from the plant. We are growing a few plants in the back yard garden, but going to the fields with our friends to pick them is such a fun outing. Sunday we headed out with friends to Shouldice Berry Farms on Woodroffe Avenue to gather baskets of the yummy fruit.
We finished it off with a swim and lunch at their house afterwards. Do you like strawberries? Have you ever gone to pick your own?
