So, let me preface this by saying, I haven't played LoTRO in quite awhile. I was already mildly annoyed that I logged into my farmer to discover many-a-slot of now unusable seeds and poor crops that I just never got around to using, so when I went to farm up some strawberries for my Cook, I just grumbled and blindly bought up 100 of each of seeds/fertilizer/water
Go ahead and laugh; it's therapeutic. Two hours later I'm STILL harvesting crops from the bundles, and my farming tools just broke for the fifth time (not the inferior starter junk either )
Fortunately I just happen to have a copy of "The Hobbit" close by which I've been meaning to re-read literally for years now, so it's not like I really wasted my time or anything. Now I'm wondering though, should I vendor the berries, try to auction them (I'll have well over ten stacks, as a master artisan farmer), or finish reading while I grow enough hops and barley to make enough strawberry stout to drown two dwarven kingdoms?
Can't imagine you'll get much in the AH for the Strawberries, though the Juicy Strawberries you get should sell.
Maybe just run around the low level areas, opening trades with random new players and giving them some strawberries. They'll be most confused as you happily stroll off looking for the next unsuspecting strawberry recipient.
Try farming peas instead, a lot of those sell, as well as the winter barley. Wooly mint - if you find it is also valuable, in fact any rare items (like the juicy strawberry) can be used to make dyes, and are therefore quite valuable.
