I would love it if you would mail some!


Mmmm... I can't wait for strawberry season. I just got my Cooks Illustrated magazine and there's a recipe for fresh strawberry pie I'll have to try.
Yes, I found a friend to buy half of the vanilla beans, but still have plenty (around25). You want me to mail some?

Sounds really good. I spent the morning taking the hats off of two huge baskets of strawberries that a guy was selling off the back of a pickup truck on the square. They came from 4J Farms, which is a u-pick farm in Jasper County. They don't use pesticides, but I didn't ask about fungicides or herbicides . . .. They are delicious. I'm freezing most of them for smoothies, and we ate a bunch sliced up with a little bit of sugar. I also set out some particularly pretty ones to dip in chocolate later.

Didn't you say you have too much vanilla? Could we buy/pick up some next time we are through that way? I think we're taking a trip up to Buffalo (and through Columbia) some time in July or August.
