Strawberries

 

Strawberries have always been my favorite in fact they are a huge deal back home in the small east Tennessee town I am from. Every May our strawberry fields grow in abundance and they are the sweetest most large and fresh berries you will ever try. To celebrate our fresh crops we have a yearly festival at the end of May called The Strawberry Festival. We have a week long carnival and that following Saturday a massive parade with all kinds of crafts and foods on the courthouse lawn. You can find strawberry crafts and desserts of every kind, it’s pretty amazing.

My grandfather used to grow strawberries for me in the backyard but the deer would always seem to get to them before we did. He would always joke with me and take my berries saying that I did not like them anyway (I sure do miss him). My love for strawberries is even why I chose the name of my personal blog Little Pink Strawberries.

Here in Riyadh we still get strawberries but they are imported and pretty expensive. I am just glad it’s finally Spring so we can get the really sweet ones. Look at this massive fatty I got, 3 inches wow.
