Strawberry pickin'

For years I have wanted to go strawberry picking. The last few years we have gone apple picking and last year we picked grapes, blackberries and raspberries.

This year we finally made it to the strawberry patch. It was so much fun. I got around 25 pounds of strawberries. The plan is to make jam, freeze some for later use and a try my hand at a few desserts.

The weather was absolutely perfect! I think it only got to about 73 degrees.

I have this thing with "firsts". Call me weird, but I get a bit giddy about doing things for the first time. So this week not only did we go strawberry picking I also held a boa! Hopefully, those pictures will follow soon. :o)
