I’ve heard some of the local Yurok’s traditional stories and they are interesting.
Hand dip them in chocolate and she will really love you.
I LOVED the story, nickcarraway! Thanks for posting it.
Thanks for posting!
Oh, there are all sorts of interesting Cherokee legends. The great, monstrous bird-like creature Tlanuwha has always been striking. Impenetrable metal feathers. Mountain balds were cleared to combat the things. Sounds very much like the Thunderbird or Piasa Bird of other legend.
For what it’s worth, the Strawberry is the only plant with seeds on the outside of the fruit so, yes, it’s a pretty special plant!
Interesting, thanks for sharing.
It is now strawberry season in East Tennessee. We are fortunate to have an entrapraneur that grew his small farm into a mega enterprise producing tons of strawberries.
We eat them every day, sometimes twice a day. We know that too soon, they will be gone.
The favorite recipe:
Bake Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits, cut them in half, apply generous amount of butter and sugar, reheat until melted.
Cut strawberies in two or three, mash, apply sugar.
Put mashed strawberries and all the juice on the buttered sugared biscuits.
