Strawberries
Strawberries I picked this morning

Today’s harvest:  four big juicy strawberry strawberries and three intense Alpine strawberries. It’s a real incentive to get your shoes on in the morning when you know there’s ripe strawberries waiting for you. And the snails.

It’s a real race. If they’re so dumb, how do they know to wait until the fruit is perfect? If they’re so undiscriminating, why do they take only the best parts? Clearly, these snails are taking life way too easy.
