OMG my title is bad. WOW! Oh well, I am allowed to be cheesy here.
1. Given all that information on this 🍓National Strawberry Day🍓, do you have a favorite recipe for strawberries? Would you share it with us?
Honestly, I just like them as is or sliced up and in cereal. But in a Life or Crispix type cereal.
2. Some people think the smaller, northern varieties are sweeter than the larger berries that grow in the south and in California. What are your thoughts on that?
No idea. LOL. I will say, I once picked raspberries right from a bush in western New York and they were definitely sweeter. Perhaps the same goes for strawberries.
3. There is a Strawberry Festival right here in Plant City, Florida (next town over from Lakeland) and it is a huge event that lasts 11 days with headliner acts each day. Have you ever been to a Strawberry Festival?
I have been to THAT festival! We had a family reunion in Plant City one year and on one of the days, we all went over. I don’t remember a whole lot of it but I remember thinking it was pretty cool.
4. Strawberries are grown in every US state. Have you ever grown them in your garden?
I think we did when I was young. We had a small garden with watermelon, strawberries, and squash.
