Instead of blue, we’re going with red today. Awwww, disappointed? I can fix that too. But first…strawberries from Comanche, Texas…30 lbs to be exact. I usually get more, like 60 lbs. but my time was limited for the moment so 30 it was. Midways between Comanche and Dublin (home of Dr. Pepper) is a fruit and veggie farm, Worthington Orchards. There you will find a plethora of wonderment…blackberries, tomatoes, green beans, onions…..LOTS of stuff! And they’re really nice people too!
So at 8:00, I was frantically washing strawberries. These were really REALLY dirty. I guess the latest rains came down pretty hard and splashed the sand up on the berries. Anyway, I washed them three times. Then, I drained them, de-hulled them and started sacking them up. All this during the crazy KU vs Ohio game. I almost threw a strawberry at the KU team. Were they on the same planet last night?!! Good grief! They just kept trying and trying to give the game away….uhhh, where was I? Oh BB came in and helped me finish sacking them while I sucked the air out of the bags. Next week, when things slow down a bit???, I’ll make some jam. And since the BB likes strawberries on his cereal, I’ll let him have a few. Hopefully, I can get more on my next trip to Texas. I’m a total pushover for strawberries. Sorta like my Grandma was about peaches….the price just doesn’t matter. Gimme them berries!!!
OK, back now from a one strawberry snack. Really.
And to finish the day off, let’s do something new and different. Like maybe look at some more bluebonnet pics??!!!! *snort* Don’t worry. I have lots more to show you. And when I run out, then we can start with grandbaby pics….
