Strawberry Girl and Boys

We went strawberry picking this morning up in Mims, FL.  We picked strawberries there a few, maybe 5 years ago.  Maggie has been reading Strawberry Girl, a book about Birdie who lives in Marion County, FL in the late 1800's.  Birdie and her family tell of their struggles with new neighbors, growing crops (strawberries), and dealing with the Florida heat.  It is similar to Little House on the Prairie (if you enjoy those type of pioneer stories).  The story tells of how they grew strawberries, so we returned to the strawberry fields because of literature, but also because it is fun to pick your own delicious strawberries.
