Am I within my "rights" to return moldy strawberries?

Yesterday I bought a huge (4-lb) clamshell box of strawberries from Trader Joe's. I used about a pound of them yesterday and then mistakenly did not store them in the fridge. The ambient temperature in the kitchen has been around 80F. This evening I found that most of them have mold growing on them. Would it be fair for me to return them to Trader Joe's? [more inside]

What to do with 4lb of unfrozen strawberries

In an attempt to clear up freezer space, I took out a 4lb bag of frozen strawberries, and promptly forgot about them. I left them on the counter for a few hours, now they're thawed. The bag was a bit leaky, so I put them in a ziplock bag and put them in the refrigerator. Question 1) are they still OK to eat or use in a recipe, and if they are still OK, 2) what do I do with 4lb of unfrozen strawberries? Thanks!

Wedding night prep, what do I need to get ready?

1. I want to deck out the hotel room. We're staying at a Denver Marriott for the wedding night before flying out. I want roses, candles etc... all nice and romantic. Will the marriott put out candles, rose petals, roses and chocolate strawberries for me? I'll be coming from faraway in the mountains, so if they could do it for me that would be awesome. 2. We're doing gift exchange between eachother. Any ideas what I should get my bride?

She thought her period was because she ate strawberries

I've been trying to find a book I read as a kid, way back in the mid-to-late-seventies. My memories are sketchy, but this is what I've got: About a girl growing up in a small community, maybe in the mountains, or maybe just very rural. She had an extended family which included two unmarried aunts and a grandfather. It took place over a summer. She thought her first period was the result of eating a large amount of strawberries. It was written in first-person perspective, I think. [more inside]

Fingerfood dessert recipe using frozen strawberries?

I have been freezing strawberries from my garden and currently have about 6-8 cups of them. I need to take a dessert to a Christmas party this weekend. I would like to use the strawberries, but it needs to be something that can be eaten with fingers (probably no bowls or utensils will be available) and work well with berries that have been frozen. Any ideas?

strawberry fields for... a year

I want to grow strawberries on my Brooklyn balcony this year. Lots of strawberries, all different sizes and shapes and colors, with as long a productive period as possible (in aggregate). What varieties should I get, and where should I buy them? Should I do anything special besides giving them dirt and water? Are there any other plants that make nice companions to strawberries (esthetically or organically)? The balcony faces west and is partially shaded by trees, but does get a lot of heat and direct sunlight in the summer.

Help me figure out how to actually reap the strawberries I've sown.

I've got a strawberry patch in my backyard, but I've yet to actually get a strawberry from it. The raccoons and other varmints eat them all. What, other than sitting on the garden bench with a shotgun 24/7, is the most effective way to protect my strawberries?
