Over the long Memorial Day weekend, Sgt and I found a great place to pick local strawberries...$1.89 lb! Can't beat that price and I love romping around on a farm pickin' berries. It brings back fond memories of my childhood and picking strawberries on my Grand-Pap's farm. My Grand-Pap was a big fan of underage child labor and we were paid the huge sum of 25 cents per flat of strawberries we picked. I realize now that if all us grand kids were smart, we would have formed a union and staged a strike for better pay! If I remember correctly, it was Mom and Dad that did most of the berry pickin' for the strawberry stand where we sold the berries (also known as our front porch), while I spent most of my time eating more strawberries than I actually picked.
Because I am now a responsible grown up, I will just say that I didn't partake in any strawberry eating until they were all paid for! See Grand-Pap, I did turn out okay after all!
