The brief season of local strawberries started around 2 weeks ago and is in full swing. Today, I went to the local Whole Foods clone, and they had local strawberries for $2.50/pint (which was also true last week) and $10 for a half-flat (6 pints). So, lots of strawberry smoothies (2 bananas, 1.25 pints of strawberries, 2/3 cup of light coconut milk, and some ice (+ maybe ½ tsp vanilla) = smoothies for three (and I put 1 TBS of sugar in mine). Definitely awesome. I may make strawberry pie if we don't have most of them eaten by tomorrow night. For people who have never tasted local strawberries, in addition to being fully ripe, they are also vastly more delicate and full of flavor than other strawberries that I've had, and to me largely make the California strawberries that are available for far longer not worth the trouble to eat, much less buy.
