Strawberries...

...and Chocolate Velvet Torte.The strawberry season has started!

I love farm-gate sales! We were able to get some spray-free strawberries that were picked on the (organic) farm, and when they were at their peak. They tasted just like home-grown strawberries! Ours are still little, green balls, so we'll have to wait a bit longer to eat our own.

Umm...yes. There is only one more piece left. It's yours, if you are quick. :)

We are still managing one or two strawberries but I doubt all the green ones will make it to red before the frost hits them.

Veggie Gnome said...

Sue, that is a real shame! Nothing better than home-grown strawberries. :)

Try strawberries with a grind of black pepper.

Oh, Linda, I have never tried that. Must do so very soon! Thank you. :)
