Solstice Strawberries - Tamara's Journeys

Solstice Strawberries

June 20th, 2014

Farmer Woodman was driving his John Deere tractor along the road with a trailer load of fertilizer.  Joe, a little boy of eight, was playing in his yard when he saw the farmer and asked, ‘What’ve you got in your trailer?’

‘Manure,’ Farmer Woodman replied.

‘What are you going to do with it?’ asked Joe. ‘Put it on my strawberries,’ answered the farmer.

Joe replied, ‘You ought to come and eat our Solstice feast with us, we put ice-cream on our strawberries.’

On Solstice Eve two yokels were on the train heading homewards through Maine when one of them noticed some cows.

‘What a lovely bunch of cows.’ he remarked. ‘Not a bunch, herd,’ his friend replied.

‘Heard of what?’ ‘Herd of cows.’

‘Of course I’ve heard of cows.’

‘No, a cow herd.’

‘What do I care what a cow heard. I have no secrets to keep from a cow.’
