Strawberries! The first fruits of Spring have arrived, and I couldn't be more excited. Not only does this mean fresh, local strawberries for me from the Trader Joe's just off of campus, but it means that summer fruit is around the corner, and oh, how I looooove my summer fruit! So, this is breakfast today: a bunch of ripe, red strawberries, a piping hot cup of medium roast coffee, a piece of toast, and a glass of milk.
Also on the fruit front, my sister has come across this great website called Fallen Fruit, which, according to their website, is "an activist art project" that encourages people to make and post maps of public fruit ("all fruit on or overhanging public spaces such as sidewalks, streets or parking lots") in their neighborhoods, for everyone to harvest and enjoy. They have a map of my college town, so I'm planning (perhaps this weekend?) on going on a small harvesting expedition to see what I can find. I'll be sure to post the results here, but until then, I'm just going to keep on munching on my strawberries.
