The prime growing season has not begun for most of the Northern hemisphere, but in Miami, it’s almost over. Luckily we got in a trip to Knaus Berry Farm last weekend to do some strawberry picking. They were so good, red all the way through. We were delighted to find out we could also pick tomatoes, so we came home with a box full of red fruit. The strawberries were used for eating and jam (preview of our Making Groceries column, check Fridays). The tomatoes became the central theme in this week’s dinners.
Strawberry fields forever!

Both parents obsessively record the moment for posterity!
Why I love my husband.
Notice the strawberry smear on his face. Jack's was on his cute puppy shirt.
Max's harvest. Notice the snitch?
This is not the same picture. Notice Jack's chubby little fingers. Perhaps my favorite baby body part.
On to tomatoes
These taste nothing like the grocery store's gassed and gross tomatoes.
My bucket. The green ones were for frying.
Our harvest: For $14 we feasted like kings.
