Destined to fall in love, two who share a strawberry.

Strawberries are loaded with nutrients and are rich in lore. Last year Waverly Fitzgerald, over at Living in Season, wrote a post on strawberries. It’s worth reading if you want to discover more about strawberries before heading out to pick them at one of the many pick-your-own farms in Western Mass.

A neat project to do with your kids is to have their grandmother share her favorite strawberry recipe with them. Take photos, video tape or make an audio tape and then submit it to What’s Cooking Grandma, our most recently reviewed web site.
