Look down...look waaay down...wild strawberries...or "Fragaria Virginiana" as James would likely call them (he really isn't a geek!), are ripe in Ontario! You will find these juicy little gems in open clearings, fields and in the longer grass of your lawn...providing you don't have a manicured lawn that has been sprayed with weed killer...then you might be outta luck my friend!
These little berries are super sweet and pack a flavour punch for such a little guy...my Mom once gathered enough to make us a pie! That lady had the patience of "Job", I tell ya!!
Wild strawberries are quite small but can be a bit bigger like the ones above...and your picky child might turn up her nose and say "this one is squishy"!...wait a minute, that was a flashback from my childhood...fussy little brat I was...am!
