Dirt Pic #4: Strawberries!

To me, it's the true beginning of summer – when the strawberries are rock-star sweet and juicy. I've gotten a couple pints of local strawberries from my neighborhood store already, but they haven't yet reached that utmost perfection of form and flavor.
At Martin's Farmstand, outside Potsdam, they're still ripening. Daniel Martin says U-pick is about ten days away.
What's the strawberry crop looking like in your neck of the woods? If you're picking and gathering (or eating) them, send a picture of someone doing just that, to david-at-ncpr-dot-org. Happy strawberry season!
