1.  Given all that information on this 🍓National Strawberry Day🍓, do you have a favorite recipe for strawberries?  Would you share it with us?  I like eating strawberries and I like strawberry cake, but I do not really have any special recipes that use strawberries, maybe I will find some doing this meme.
2.  Some people think the smaller, northern varieties are sweeter than the larger berries that grow in the south and in California.  What are your thoughts on that?  I wouldn't know.
3.  There is a Strawberry Festival right here in Plant City, Florida (next town over from Lakeland) and it is a huge event that lasts 11 days with headliner acts each day.  Have you ever been to a Strawberry Festival?  no
4.  Strawberries are grown in every US state.  Have you ever grown them in your garden?  My Grandpa used to have a strawberry bed and I would help him pick strawberries every summer.  I loved doing that.  I have not grown them myself.
5.  Strawberry is the only fruit that has seeds on the outside, and technically it is not a berry but rather a fruit, and would you be surprised to learn that strawberries belong to the rose family?  Do you have any strawberry trivia to share with us?  no
6.  Tell us something random about your week!!  It was 64º here today in Missouri.  The kids were so excited to get to go outside and play.  The cold and rain return tomorrow.  I watched the Oscars on Sunday and enjoyed that for a change.  I am not into hearing their opinions on politics, so I usually do not watch, but it was not too bad this year.  Queen and Lady Gaga were awesome. 



  1. 64....oh how I long for warm days.... its 18 right now.. brrr

    I used to go to the strawberry farms and pick my own.. now I put in my order at Krupp Farms and go pick them up.. .I'm too old to go pickin! LOL

    Have a great day!

  2. It's freezing here in NJ.
    Strawberries grow wild in my yard every year but birds eat them before I can get to them.

  3. Your strawberry story about picking strawberries with your Grandfather brought back great memories for me too Lori! My Great Aunt and Uncle had an orchard and we woudl love to walk around and eat fruit right off of the trees! Such amazing memories!!

  4. Strawberries and your grandpa!! I love that!! Thanks for joining the Medley today! Glad you had a warm day the kids could enjoy before bad weather sets in again!

  5. It was 50 degrees and sunny here for most of the day, but it's falling temps and snow for tomorrow. Blah.

  6. That's exactly why I don't watch award shows: too much political posturing. They're barely about the awards.

  7. We used to go pick strawberries when I was a kid and some older but now I go after those already! I actually would like to try growing some of my own, maybe in containers. Enjoy your weekend!
