Wild Strawberries

Wild Strawberry is Perfect.

The fruit ripens in late spring or early summer. Much smaller than commercial strawberries, it takes long to collect, but tastes much better. Stuff yourself with wild strawberries, collect them to use on cer>eal, in pancakes, oatmeal, fruit salad, sauces, or other desserts. They are so good, they are the symbol of perfect excellence.

 

A HAIKU GUIDE TO WILD STRAWBERRIES

1. Always pick the day

before the berry;

try the first day of summer.

2. Then fall to your knees

and follow your nose

in a field the sun favors.

3. Yes, bring a bucket

but to eat your fill,

you must be lucky or small.

4. And to bring them home,

even to loved ones,

makes you a strawberry saint.
