Louisiana Strawberries

Louisiana strawberries are coming in and you can buy them on the side of the road right out of the back of the farmer's truck! I love handing the cash straight to the farmer. One more way to help out the little guy. I'm working on a large wedding this weekend, but.....I still found time to make some of the yummiest.....

Yipee! It's strawberry season. I love it. My father-in-law use to always get us a flat of them from Ponchatula every year. It was something I always looked forward to. Can't wait to get me some. I hope they are sweet this year.

You are making me so homesick! I grew up in South Louisiana not far from Ponchatoula mentioned above. My parents grew strawberries so these strawberries bring back wonderful memories of home. Especially since we are expecting snow tomorrow in the midwest : )

Your photography is dazzling. Here in Honduras, every vendor tells me that HIS strawberries are from Gautemala, which are far superior to any other. They don't seem to be aware of the superior quality of LOUISIANA strawberries.

Laurie, Even Louisiana strawberry farmers argue that their "Louisiana" strawberries are much better than the other farmer's "Louisiana" strawberries! We farmers are a proud bunch, but I must admit, the strawberries I grow don't give much competition to anyone's strawberries.

Debbie, thanks for the comment. I think that's one of the sweetest comments ever. I'm thankful that I leave you with good intentions, and I hope others feel the same way!

Canned Quilter...Come on back home honey and warm up ;)
