Because we got there in the middle of the afternoon, and it was rather warm out, we had the place to ourselves and that was totally divine. I could let the kids wonder without worry. There were ginormous, sweet strawberries as far as the eye could see. We ended up picking over 9 pounds worth. Strawberry picking is so much less labor intensive than blueberry picking!
^^ This picture reminded me of when we went strawberry picking in Scotland when Connor was a baby. There is a picture of me holding a strawberry the same way.
^^ Isla is always copying Connor. When she realized he was holding his bucket up, she had to hold her's up as well.
We will definitely be strawberry picking again next year. These are the sweetest and juiciest strawberries I have tasted in a very long time. They are washed and cut and chilling (literally) in the frig...the perfect snack! I also mashed some up and have them freezing in popsicle molds. I figure they will be the perfect snack for the kids, given it is supposed to be 106 today!
