    Late last month, Renate Warner of Tell City and her 2-year-old son, Isaac, were picking strawberries in their patch, when they spotted these two unusually shaped berries.

    Isaac’s 9-month-old brother, Isaiah, sat nearby in his stroller and watched.

    “As long as we give him a few bites, he is happy,” said Warner. “Isaac loves picking and eating berries as well. When I saw the fruit, I decided to take a picture of them.”
