86|365 first berries

In California, you can find berries 10 months out of the year. But I force myself to wait until the local ones are available, the same way I force myself to not peek at my Christmas presents (at least now that I am a grown up). These were from Oxnard, which isn’t close, but it’s above LA, so I considered them localish enough. They were worth the wait. Watsonville berries are next.

  1. These grow year-round where I grew up – Oxnard. I always took it for granted that I could get strawberries when I wanted to. Now that I live in Oregon, the strawberry season is short and sweet. Forces each berry to be an enigma.
