This could be the last week for strawberry picking… or at least one farm in my area was winding up their ‘Pick Your Own’ for strawberries. So on Thursday morning, my friends and I and our kids went to the Organics Family Farm for some picking.
The weather was good – warm and not too sunny. We quickly got down to business, looking for nice strawberries to pick among the tiny ones, rotten ones and thistles!
We stopped picking when our baskets got full. Next time we will have to stop when they’re only three-quarters full because when we walk back down the row there seems to be all these beautiful strawberries that we didn’t see earlier! We’ll stop to pick them and then finally stop when strawberries start falling off the overflowing baskets.
I got 2 quarts (2 litres) for $6.50. I’ll make strawberry sauce with some of them and eat the rest fresh… with ice cream, of course. 🙂
