Marshall Strawberry

Not news to anyone but me, but a couple of my strawberries are starting to blush meaning those juicy delights will be breakfast in about a week. But speaking of strawberries …

Carolyn Goodwin of SoundFood.org wrote this week about a project by Bainbridge Island’s Voyager Montesori Elementary School to help save the Marshall strawberry, which once grew in abundance on the island. Last fall, Tristan Baurick wrote about an additional effort by the Bainbridge Historical society to tell people about the fruit’s history and sale of plants to raise funds for the organization.
