Came home and had a quick lunch. It was over cast and decided it was high time we go get strawberries.
Logan couldn't believe the size of the fields. Not crowded at all as it looked like rain. Not hot either. Perfect day to go.
Nik, enjoying that first pick of the season.
Everyone working hard to find the biggest and juiciest berries.
Summer, not so sure about the itchy feeling of the leaves to get to the berries.
Reni, quite pleased with her picking. BTW, she started off HATING strawberries. Now, she doesn't mind the taste at all. We're guessing she had to have gotten a not so ripe strawberry in Bulgaria and it "tainted" her view.
Irina, showing off her pickings. Glad she decided to go with us.
Nik had a bucket full in no time. Might have to hire him as a farm hand.
On our way to check out. You can see just how big the fields are.
How many strawberries does your family pick? We ended up with 8 boxes. All being told, we truly needed about 8 more. This doesn't yield as much as it looks but at $1.85 a pound, this was all we could do. It was $85 total. Ended up freezing to bags of "sauce," 4 bags of whole berries, at a entire box, and have a whole box left that we are making jam with. Maybe next year we can get some more.
A closer look at the delicious berries. Makes you want to reach through the screen and grab one. Yum. Yes, they are as good as they look.
