Strawberry Pickin'

There is a u-pick strawberry patch a mile or so up the road from our home. We moved here last year a bit too late to take advantage of those strawberries, but it has been my plan all year long to take the boys berry pickin' so I could make some jam this summer. With Brooke coming any day, I wasn't sure that plan would come to fruition, but it did! I guess I was feeling energetic or something, because the day before she was born, we went with the grandparents to the farm. That afternoon my mother-in-law and I put up two batches of strawberry jam: freezer jam and cooked jam. I'm surprised I haven't taken any pictures of the jam that we put up! (Now that I'm a blogger, I've noticed that I take pictures of odd things! LOL )

Anyway, here are some pictures of our strawberry adventure:

  1. Looks like fun. I just called some farms to see if any have any strawberries left. I hope we get to go pick some. Maybe Monday. Looks like you had lots of fun (and eating them while you're picking is so fun, too). We always joke that they should weigh the kids on the way in and out!
