2012 crop of strawberries
In all my almost 90 years I have never had so many miserable boxes of strawberries, both local and CA imports - we were fortunate at the very beginning of the season to get a few boxes of delicious local berries and I'm glad I froze some. Since then what we have in the market are large, rock-hard, white-inside berries from more than one grower. Why bother shipping such poor quality and why does Whole Foods keep on selling them? Has anyone else met up with this problem?
