Strawberry Pickin

Rick, Samantha and I went strawberry picking today. I grew up in the country and going out there today makes me want to move to the country again! I do get over it, though... I like city living because I love the convenience of everything and I know winter in the country would make me really DEPRESSED! But, it sure is nice sometimes... We picked about 18 pounds... giving lots of them away and of course eating them ourselves! YUM!

I've been buying tons at farmer's market to make jam...where did you guys go?

We went to the orchard that's on Sunset Beach Rd. by the NEW zoo. Normally we go to Sunny Acres, but thought we'd try this one. There were so many berries that you literally could sit your butt down and easily be busy for 15 minutes without moving much. Ask me how I know this, LOL! ;o)

We ended up giving away most of them (our nice neighbors, family...) because of course they don't last long after they're picked.

I don't know how I'll be able to go back to the store-bought ones after this summer!
