Home-grown or store-bought, fresh strawberries, used to make sundaes, are a great way to see summer out the back door.
Most people like strawberries as well as ice cream sundaes, so why not combine the two? I would happily sit down to a nice strawberry sundae on most any day or time. You can enjoy the berries fresh or frozen and if you are lucky, you can pick your own in your garden. I always ended up buying the berries because just about every animal loves them as much as I do.
