LOL, I knew we got along for a reason.

Probably why I'm diabetic now...

maybe you should 'cut back' while there's still time ;D ;D ;D

Yea, I guess I could start looking into those sugar free syrups and whipped cream.

We went out and picked several quarts yesterday morning.  I believe they're even better this year than last.  Whittakers had a real muddy mess out there last year with the long stretch of rain we were having at the time but they have upgraded their driveway and the drainage in the fields and it all looked as dry as you'd expect in the middle of a strawberry field.  We even saw the photographer from the Monroe News out there taking pictures and they're on the front page of the paper this morning!

I see that Whittaker's (Todd Rd in Ida Township) have put their signs out which indicates they're open or will be soon!

Ours are 'motoring' along just fine.  Gonna be a big crop this year.  Easy to grow, spread like the weeds they are...

I've heard some discussion before about strawberries being a weed.

We have a few patches of wild strawberries back in the woods.  Some years they have heavy berries and some years hardly any.  I don't do anything to maintain them except mow the taller brush back away from them in the spring.
