First Load of Local Strawberries

Went to one of the local farms selling fresh strawberries! Compton’s Vegetable Stand. The berries are packed in quarts, wooden crates, by which on PEI are considered a waste package. Treated wood can not go into the compost system.

I decided to bring my own bowl as I would if I was going to the u-pick. This way, the farmers could refill the wooden crate for another customer. I like package free when possible, sometimes I have to be the one to pull the strings!

We will be going back for more, or if there are some at the Farmer’s Market tomorrow (Saturday) that will due! Support local when I can and I like to support many local farmers/businesses, not just stick with favourites all the time. They all need our support!
