We had ourselves a little family adventure yesterday...
We picked a lot of these babies.
Well, some of us did. Other little ones of the less than 2 year old variety needed to think about it.
Until we figured out why we were there. Sampling is the best part, no?
We had lots of good helpers this year. They each filled a basket and wanted to stay longer to fill more.
Even little Eloise had picked a few, although she ate more than she picked :-)
She mainly wanted to show her baby the strawberry field.
Up and down.
Up and down.
Up and down the rows she went.
The belly came along too ;-)
See that little babe in there?
Oh, there was a lot of bending and squatting. What was I thinking?
Apparently, this is the way to pick strawberries.
Oh, and this way.
Without shoes is so much more comfortable, didn't you know?
I guess I didn't get the memo on that one.
Mr. Smashed Peas was the best helper of all.
He loaded up the biggest basket they had, what a champ!
I think fresh strawberry jam was on his mind.
Over 15 pounds of sweet little berries picked.
And I made 2 batches of jam.
Thank goodness for air conditioning.
Low sugar and No sugar varieties will be had this year.
Just trying to be a bit more healthy.
Mr. Smashed Peas and the rest of the the gang are happy campers enjoying their toast this morning!
I hope you are enjoying your summer too.
Thanks for stopping by to read!
