Default Strawberry Harvest

mmmmmmm fresh strawberries! :thumbsup:

One of my favorites, and I've made a ritual of each year getting a 2 gal. pail of fresh berries, and eat them everyday until they are gone. Some years I've even made strawberry pie.
But I'll mostly eat them plain. I'll cut up about half and mix them with sugar, and eat them with those sweet shortcakes fruit cups you always see in the stores this time of year.

I use to live right next door to a stawberry field, and my Farmer neighbor told me to help myself to all I wanted. I took wide eyed advantage of that offer. I had a yellow lab at that time. He would follow me as I went up a strawberry row, and I'd eat a berry and pass one to him.

He'd gobble his faster than I liked to savor them more. He'd nudge me to say...come on... so I told get his own. He did just that. He just started picking his own. (dang mutt) :lol:

I use to haul for a local fruit processing plant. They do all the local fruit, but specialize mostly in strawberries and cherries. I go there every year to buy the fresh picked ripe berries. This year they are selling at $1.30 per pound.

I want to do farming, I think it`s a great idea for business. The main thing is to be able to care for animals, and love what you do. And I think I can do it. Of course it will be a lot of work, but it is one hundred percent gives a good profit. Please advise, how good these guys build calving barns and how quality are?
