Went strawberry picking today. Found this uber cool strawberry (second pic) that looks like a foot, five toes and everything. From the side, it looks even more like a foot. Had to pick it the moment I saw it because the odd shape reminded me of the yellow Buddha's foot fruit. Can't find a picture of it online though, search engines keep bringing up Buddha's hand fruit instead. If I see one personally, I'll be sure to post a picture.
Anyone else planning to (or have already) picked berries this year? Seems to be a good crop season this year because of all the rain, in my area anyway. The sun-ripened strawberries were delicious. You know how (most) artificial strawberry candies never taste like the real strawberries purchased from stores? I always wondered why that was the case... until today. Even though I went strawberry picking before, the berries were sour and bland. These were sweet and had a very strong distinct "strawberry" taste which reminded me a lot of the artificial strawberry flavor. I guess those folks in test labs knew what they were talking about.
I'm planning to go blueberry and apple picking this year too, if time allows, and maybe do a couple of harvest at my friend's farm. I'll post more pictures then. TTYL.
