February 2017 strawberry harvest

A common question is what do I make with all the berries?
The answer is nothing! Most of the time I just eat them like candy straight out of the fridge!
A handful here, a handful there. Sometimes I put a dab of peanut butter on them.

I would never buy these again. While they were not terrible,
I much prefer the taste of regular white grapes.

The farmer called this one a butterfly strawberry. It was the sweetest of the bunch!
I think it looks more like a spaceship :)

We have gone back several times this season. The berries are so
sweet and juicy we ate them like candy- right out of the bowl!

Dragon fruit

Vibrant pink on the outside, white flesh with black seeds on the inside
Dragon fruit

A bland, earthy and slightly bitter taste. I didn't like it. I had to put it in a smoothie to cover
up the taste. Looks great, taste is not so good.
