Write two haiku about: strawberries.
Had probably our most successful ever local order day today, selling more than forty pounds of strawberries and a couple crates worth of greens. Also: the first three pints of raspberries of the year, which were a pleasant surprise discovery this morning. Wasn't expecting to get more than one container at this point.
Apparently today was my dad's birthday. Could have fooled everyone around here. Oh well, we're still celebrating it tomorrow night, before my parents and aunt and uncle all hit the road again for destinations elsewhere on Thursday morning.
You know they're local
when it's no surprise that they're
red all the way through.

sweet as newfound love; likewise
leaving far too soon.
