We went strawberry picking for the first time this summer. We (me) managed to pick 20 pounds of berries, of which we made jam, frozen whole berries, and some delicious fresh treats! A shout out to Guelde Strawberries for the easy picking. Great prices, too! Although the berries aren't organic (I wish!), they say they minimize spraying chemicals on the berry plants.
Then, the fun really started for them - I opened the trunk of the car, and spread a blanket out. They got to hide in there with the trunk lid acting like a sunshade. Thank goodness for the crazy-big trunk of an Impala! They played with toys, drank water, and kept themselves entertained while I finished picking berries.
I think we'll go again next year!
