What's in season?
Ah, but the luscious berries! They were packed in so delicately and so beautifully. I presume they were either going to a roadside stand with a big sign to say "Fresas con cream" - Strawberries with cream - or to San Miguel to be sold in all the little neighborhood tiendas. Can you imagine how long it took to pick and pack this many berries? NOT as long to eat them, for sure.
Farther on down the road was a brocolli truck and farm workers in the fields picking asparagus. Yum. It's that time of year. I love this drive looking at the fields that feed so much of this part of Mexico. Really, really beautiful.
