Dear List,

  My alpine strawberries have come in with force this year and I'm 
deliriously happy picking and eating them.  I usually do just that --- pick 
'em and pop 'em in my mouth, but I have so darn many of them that I'd like 
to share them with others.  However, whenever I wash them, before giving 
them to friends and relatives, they all turn to mush!  Literally strawberry 
mush.  What's this about?  How do I avoid this?  Any help out there from the 
excellent gardeners on this list?
