National Pick Strawberries Day

20 May

Journalist Rocky the Squirrel here –

Keeping his paws on the nuts of the world –

May 20th is a wonderful glorious day.  It is National Pick Strawberries Day – what a great
day to enjoy.  I know that this is a day that the pig Bacon can wrap those jowls around.  He absolutely LOVES strawberries and that’s a huge understatement.

Today, start a new tradition.  Go find a strawberry field and pick your own strawberries.  Start a family tradition.  I think Bacon’s mom is actually going to go and pick the little fellow a few of his own today. I wonder if they will let Bacon come and pick his own?  Chitter Chatter – that would be a picture for the blog!  Enjoy my friends!

Oh, and you want to see a HUGE strawberry.  I bet if Bacon saw this, he would fall over and pass out with excitement.  Are you ready – here you go:

    Ha! We had a hard freeze and snow a few days ago. No strawberries here. For those of you who do, have fun!

    Have seen flowers but no fruit yet–are you guys getting strawberries down there *already*???! PS, the best way to eat strawberries is dipped in dark chocolate, IMHO. 😉

    • PigLove

      05/21/2014 at 8:50 am

      What?! Dark chocolate…. this sounds intriguingly too good to be true. I must check this out my friend – thanks!!
      Me and mom have a date with the local strawberry patch this weekend. I.can’t.wait. They always let me come along every year. Of course I have to wear the stupid leash thingy but it’s so worth it when they feed me strawberries right from the field!! XOXO – Bacon

      • Lori Fontanes

        05/22/2014 at 7:44 am

        Oh, I wish I could see that (hint, hint–bring a camera/phone!)

      • PigLove

        05/22/2014 at 8:16 am

        Snorts. Mom did bring one. Ask me if she used it – nope! Double snorts. She had me on the leash and said *I* was being a bully and quote “Was wanting to run naked through the strawberry patch and eat my way out”. She’s crazy. I was just excited. She was trying to keep up with me, hold a basket for picking and the camera. It didn’t work out so much. But on the top side, I did get a LOT of strawberries and a lot of petting from strangers. Some of them took pictures – snorts. She passed out my business cards so maybe one of them will send her a few shots. XOXO – Bacon

      I get to go but on a leash. That’s the down side. But on the up side, I meet a LOT of people who pet me and FEED me strawberries – that’s is truly a great time. XOXO – Bacon
