Fresh produce season (also known as summer and fall) in New England is the best time of year. My family picks and freezes strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries so we can eat them through the cold, dreary winter. It's a basic 4-season survival tactic.
I went strawberry pick twice in the same weekend this year, to make sure I got enough.
Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday weekend. Mine has been full of all appropriate activities: fireworks & friends with most of worcester, veggie burgers, berries & whipped cream, watermelon mojitos, friends and new apartment cat-adoption adventures (more on that later), ocean beach fun, and more fireworks & friends tomorrow. It's been great, needless to say.
