Good morning Bob. A couple times a year we do some strawberry picking, there is nothing like getting them fresh. Some of the strawberries make it home.

This sounds like fun! I remember being in Girl Scouts when I was maybe 10 or 11 and helping out at the Strawberry Shortcake festival. We would make tons and tons of strawberry shortcake and of course sneak a few yummy strawberries.  Enjoy!

Bob Crane,  I do love strawberries, but Waupaca is a little too far for me to drive.
