Strawberry fields forever....

Another item checked off of our summer to do list

We went BERRY PICKING!!

 We are so excited to get started!!


 Wow, where do we start? How do we choose?


 Attempting to pick berries. This is way harder than we thought. It's hot! You have to bend for each one. Don't know which ones to pick.


 Finally, here's one we can keep.


This nice lady didn't even charge us for our pathetic bounty!! We stopped before we even came close to filling one side. She said our berries wouldn't register on the scale and gave them to us for free!!

It is a good thing we went for the experience and not for the berries. I don't think we will put this on our list next year.

  2. Yah, in July they are quite picked over, Strawberries are really a June berry. Raspberry/blueberry picking is better you don't have to bend to get each one, they right at arm level. (I usually skip the strawberry picking each year too.)

  3. Still, it looks like a great memory! And that was awesome of them to give them to you for free.

  4. Score! Let me tell you...blueberries are easier because you don't have to bend over.
