I’ve been knowing Farmer Lee—as Lee Moore is called—for a few years now, and all the love and care he puts into his farm never ceases to amaze me. When I first met Farmer Lee, he talked about his bees and how he had some hives out by okra fields around his town of Princeton, Texas. Fast forward a few years later, and now he is making waves with his strawberry patch. After a few rounds of trial and error, he finally found the perfect mix of soil and mulch to help his patch grow and produce big, flavorful strawberries. This picture was approaching the end of strawberry season, and he wanted me to have some of his strawberries before it was too late. So he decided to harvest me some.
