when the lady of the house came home. She gave me the tour and the

We love our Berries!! Any one of them could be called our
favorite! There is nothing quite as delicious as a berry
plucked right from the plant. And the Berries of the
Willamette Valley are ripe for the pickin'. Here are but a

: The fragrantly sweet
juiciness and deep red color of strawberries can brighten up both
the taste and aesthetics of any meal..It is no wonder they are
the most popular berry fruit in the world.
