34. You could tell when strawberries were in season because you could smell
the fresh berries when you walked through the produce dept. A couple of other things I've noticed about the berries I find in the stores now is that they have to be sliced, you can't just mash them up with a potato masher, and the centers have very little, if any, color to them and are sometimes hollow.

When I was a kid we once found a patch of wild strawberries growing along the side of the road. We managed to pick enough to fill a small bowl and used them for strawberry shortcake. They were, without a doubt, the best I've ever tasted.
