Good bye to Strawberry fields


I have a friend whose father has been running strawberry fields for decades. Now this season is going to be the last crop of his strawberries. He's going to retire from this business. He used to own another two strawberry vinyl houses beside this and now he's going to change this one into rice fields which is easier to take care of.
So here was our big surprise! We were invited to visit his strawberry fields and picked up as many as we could! Oh dear, it was endless and such a fun!

I'm sure this is happening alot...quite sad in a way, when small independent farmers can't compete with the giants!
Lovely week dear~
