‘Niaweh for strawberries’

June 16, 2013
Mary Burns Deas , The OBSERVER

June is, without question, one of the best months of the year. School is out and vacation has begun. The aroma of cookouts permeates throughout the neighborhood. The sun's light is still out past 9:30 p.m. and when it does get dark, lightning bugs glitter in the trees. Hummingbirds are recurring friends at the feeder, and perhaps best of all is that strawberry time has arrived. What an indulgent pleasure to sweep aside some green leaves, find the perfect shade of red, and bite into a warm, sun-ripened strawberry. If even just for a short season, we can skip the supermarket berries that are dry with insides that are white and pulpy and enjoy our local crop of juicy, sweet strawberries.
