Strawberry pickin'

I am finally getting around to posting pictures of our day strawberry picking. It seems like it was forever ago. I made jam and a few desserts out of what we picked. I've already given away 2 jars of jam and I just had to open a new jar for us!

It was a scorcher that day! Hot and muggy! The sun never took a break. I regretted wearing jeans after 5 minutes.

We have 2 different orchards that we visit. This one is our favorite for strawberries, blackberries and raspberries.

The view is beautiful. The people are wonderful. 
All the kids took a lot of breaks to sit in the shade. They got tired of picking after awhile. The strawberries were good but they were definitely already picked through.
Its hard not too eat as you pick! 
We ended up with quite a batch. Even after all our munchies.
