It’s early Summer on the island, time for the first fruits of the year -strawberries. I recently visited local farmer Andrew Woodruff at Whippoorwill Farm in Oak Bluffs to do some picking in his fields. He grows strawberries every year for the 500 members of his Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. My kids and I walked carefully down the rows, on the lookout for ripe crimson berries hidden under leaves, and we gathered enough to take home for strawberry smoothies and muffins.

These photos of our strawberries accompanied an article written by Ali Berlow for Cape Cod Life, published for the summer issue 2009.
