It is strawberry time in Tennessee. These were purchased from a roadside truck farmer who picked them this morning. It has been raining all day. He said to spread them out to dry on paper towels at home. Wanna bite? After eating as many as possible with whipped cream, the rest were sliced, covered in sugar, then refrigerated. There will be strawberry pancakes in the morning.

This video will make you want to get out and go for a drive.

    Ah, I can’t wait to go strawberry picking. I’ll have to do that soon, before the season is over. What an interesting looking one you have there! I bet they are delicious!

    The hostas are also interesting. I love the variety that you’ve shown in your beautiful photos.

    I tried using the reply by email to comment. Didn’t work.

    You do have to protect them from slugs and such.

  5. That’s a funny looking strawberry! Love the hostas by the way, it’s another low-maintenance plant on my list!

    If you ever go to Franklin via 96W, there is frequently someone selling in season produce at the Leiper’s Fork crossroad.

    I love all hostas. They are quite wonderful. I am so looking for some strawberries. I hope to pick some this year. Though I still have some last year in my freezer. Guess I should eat those first.

    I’m looking forward to those strawberry pancakes in the morning.

    Did you leave any strawberries for me? Oh, the hosta beds look nice as well.
