Strawberry festival

Every Sunday we try and go some place new, take a break from working on the boat. This Sunday we went to the Strawberry festival. It was first started to help the farmers sell their strawberries. Now it's a big fair, lots and lots of fair food.
 As you can see in the picture they really have growing strawberries down to a science. During the cold weather the farmers used water to keep the berries from the cold. Now Plant City ( that's where the farms are) has big stink holes everywhere. They used so much water they drained the wells and ground water.
I don't know if anyone wants to know this kind of stuff but, I think it is interesting. Kathy:)
