strawberry picking

August 7, 2014

Last year’s strawberry picking was such a hit that we spent the following 12 months going strawberry picking in the living room with a basket and imaginary strawberries.  So it was a total no-brainer that we had to return this year.  We went to the same U-pick place again this year, and we brought Jason and Eleanor with us.  The strawberries were smaller (and the weeds bigger!) than I remembered from last year, but we managed to pick enough to make mama a strawberry margarita (and Lilly her first “kiddie margarita”), and that’s really all that matters.  Our picking process was only slightly impeded by two tiny hands plucking the freshly picked strawberries from the baskets and taking a bite or two before returning them to the basket, but that is part of the fun, right!?

Some pictures from what turned out to be a pretty fun afternoon:

    I am impressed that you guys can still PYO strawberries! Makes me wonder if there’s somewhere around here that we can too; our usual place ended end of June.

      Oh! Whoops. I should have mentioned: I am so far behind blogging that these pictures are from the beginning of June! I think we were done about mid-June, too. I WISH we could still pick them!
