There is something special about living in New England that I will miss if I ever move away. That is the newness that each season seems to bring. It doesn’t matter that we repeat the same four seasons every year. Each spring the flowers seem brighter and more abundant, in the summer the first taste of the seasons fruit and vegetables taste sweeter and more crisp. With June we have the return of the farmer’s markets. Although the pickings are still a bit sparse this time of year there is one thing in particular that I crave. Fresh picked strawberries. And I mean fresh picked. Not the kind you buy at the supermarket that say “Fresh Picked ” right above the line that says “Packed in California”. I’m talking about the kind that literally came in from the farm an hour ago. I lucked out today because the farm these particular strawberries were picked is only a mile or so from my house. They really did pick them this morning, put them in the truck and brought them to the farmer’s market. I’ll be darned if I didn’t taste the sunshine in my first bite of my first fresh picked strawberry of the season. I can’t wait to go pick my own with the kids on the next nice day off we have.
