Around Town...

This edition of Around Town is about our little local strawberry stand. It's been here for as long as I can remember. Each year it draws a bigger crowd and they become busier. The best strawberries around are found right here. Whenever we have out-of-town guests, we buy them these strawberries, or if we're going to visit friends or family, we take along a 3-pack. It's expected of us now. I hate to think what would happen if we showed up without them during strawberry season!

Each January I see the owners giving this little stand a fresh coat of paint and it makes me happy to think that these delicious strawberries will once again be available. You can pick your own berries or buy the ones already picked and ready to go. There are also tomatoes, green beans and corn available, equally yummy. They even provide a large water-filled container with a spigot so you can eat the strawberries right then and there. Very smart.
