    Are the strawberries any good? Thanks for sharing!

    • Gretchen says:

      They are decent. I’ve found that since moving to TN, the strawberries here often have black or moldy centers. When I lived in KS, the strawberries were never like that and always plump and delicious. It’s really strange to me. I don’t know if it’s the location or time of year, but I’m hoping maybe they will get better once spring arrives. – Gretchen, MSM Team
