Strawberry Fields Forever

Story and photos by Hal Goodtree

Apex, NC – Nothing beats the pleasure of fresh strawberries in May on farms across in the Triangle.

I’ve certainly been eating my share of ‘berries. But driving past DJ’s Berry Patch on Saturday morning, I had to consume the experience with a camera.

This, by the way, is a strawberry flower.

The fields were lush with berries, some completely ripe, others still white and green for future harvest.

I walked away from the parking lot, to the farthest end of the field. The air smelled like strawberries. How do you capture that in a photo?

Springtime, and the picking is easy.
