Summer Sweetness in January

Don't marry a girl who wants strawberries in January.
American proverb

Today's photo makes my mouth water. The strange weather we've been having over the past few months had me worried for the local fruit crops but the strawberries this year are large and sweet; albeit about ten percent more expensive than last year. Dad bought a flat out at Murphy's today and I processed them this evening. Our plan is to repeat this process a few times until the freezer is stocked full so that we might enjoy their sweetness, even in January.

Here they would likely not get past Thanksgiving - nor make it into the freezer for that matter ...

- pretty soon we will need 3D glasses to decipher the words and now the images - they have also lost their metaphorical nature - what can you make out of : 9 hipansz - maybe a name given by a polish crew member of the Santa Maria landing on Hispaniola?
