Well it's Summer Solstice today and a happy Solstice to all. The official first day of summer, the longest day of the year, and here we are in Eugene. While the rest of the country might be enjoying summer, it's overcast and we had some showers yesterday. I'm trying to decide between wearing a sweater or a raincoat.
But who am I to complain? Because, while it might be hot and sunny in the rest of the country, this weather is just right for fresh picked, field ripened, Oregon strawberries.
And that's like biting into a big juicy, warm, summer day.
The strawberries are coming to an end, the cherries are early and it won't be long until we have raspberries too. Must be summer after all.
