Today we went strawberry picking. At first it looked as if there weren't many berries but as we made our way up the row there were plenty of them. In no time we had our two pails full.
Sorry about these first pics. Now I realize they are actually supposed to be horizontal.
Once home we washed and got them ready to be frozen. This year I have sugared them before freezing, just to see if we like that better.
I put aside some of the nicest ones and after school the grands dipped them in melted chocolate so we had them for dessert at suppertime.
I'm so happy we had this day of sunshine so we could go berry picking because now the days ahead are going to be showery. Not heavy rain but not terribly pleasant to be out in the field picking berries. I'm sure we'll go again when the sunshine returns. Incidentally, if it is of any interest we paid 1.50 a pound. Two ice cream pails weighed 10 lbs.
Thanks for popping by today. I hope you had a good day too.
