are finally ripe here in the northeast. I woke up early Saturday morning and realized that there wouldn't be a better time to take the kids strawberry picking than then. So, despite the rain, I woke everyone up and we took off for breakfast and strawberry picking.
We brought home 20lbs of delicious, sweet red berries.
That Bea can handle a paring knife. She helped clean and then we frozen about 3/4 of the berries...
and ate the rest.
I think I will have to go back this week for more. We didn't get enough to last the year and we ate what we didn't freeze like it was candy!
