grandma’s strawberries

when clark brought these strawberries to me yesterday morning at farmer’s market, i immediately thought of the strawberry patch that my grandmother had.  she loved that strawberry patch. every year she would put out plastic snakes to keep the birds away. after hours of picking and hulling tiny,red, sweet strawberries she would put them in a plastic butter tub or cottage cheese container with a sprinkling of sugar and bring them to our house with either those little round shortcakes for homemade vanilla ice cream. so last night i thought of her as, i hulled some tiny berries and put them in a yogurt container with a sprinkling of sugar and took them to my parents house with some shortcake.
