I absolutely love living here sometimes! (and sometimes I don't...) Today we headed out to a U-pick farm. They are everywhere up here. We went for strawberries. I forgot my camera! Or I would have fun pictures of D and K bent over rows of strawberry bushes with buckets in tow. I would have pictures of them standing in rows of blueberry and raspberry bushes over their heads. I would have pictures of the 23 lbs of strawberries we managed to pick.
Yes, 23 lbs. I know. I was surprised to when she weighed our buckets. and bowls. Perhaps we got carried away..... but when you taste them.... ooooooohhh.....
The blueberries and raspberries are just coming into season so we didn't get as many of those. Only about 3 1/2 lbs of blueberries and 2 1/2 lbs of raspberries.
So what does one do with 23 lbs of ripe, juicy strawberries besides eat them until one feels sick? So far I have frozen 2 1/2 trays for use in smoothies and such. I have also begun crushing some for freezer jam. Yum!
The other berries? So far we have just gotten to the eat them until you feel sick part.
