holiday snapshot number three: picking strawberries

One day before we left Zurich I cleared our first strawberry bed as the season was more or less over. At the Baltic Sea, the season had just started. So? Trip to the nearest organic strawberry field. Result? More than four kilograms in less than 30 minutes….Oh my, these strawberries were superb! It’s a miracle that we managed to stop after half an hour (it’s incredibly hard to suppress the impulse to just bend down and start picking when you see these amounts of ripe strawberries. The trick is to stare at the horizon and to continue breathing….)

Perfect snack for hot summer days!!

About erdhummel

Familial entropy - that's an insight into our current life which has been fundamentally changed last summer when our daughter was born. Having studied in Cottbus, Germany, and worked/studied in Edinburgh, Scotland, we momentarily live in a small town in Switzerland where Karsten is trying to save the environment and Freddie is trying to save our sanity. Since there is not much time for elaborate, long emails while doing that, we thought a blog might be a good option to smuggle ourselves into the lifes of our friends.
