Nana and Morgan, awaiting instructions on where to pick.
It seems like this is becoming an annual event and I think it needs to be. We had planned to go to the strawberry farm with our homeschool group today. Friday after my surgery, the girls asked about it and I said, "We won't be able to go, because I can't drive." Sunday my mother-in-law suggested she drive and I just ride along. (I think she secretly wanted strawberries, too.)
Morgan's looking for the juiciest ones!
Brooke decided to help her aunt with a big painting job, so we only had Morgan with us. But I bought some strawberries for Brooke. They sell big flats for a really great price.
Nana was a strawberry picking machine! Her bucket was filled in double-quick time!
It didn't take long for Nana and Morgan to fill their buckets. Besides the gallon buckets, we also bought one flat each of picked berries.
Once home, we ate our fill. I added strawberries to a yummy salad brought as part of dinner from a sweet friend. Then I topped her strawberry cake with extra strawberries. And tomorrow morning, it'll be strawberries for my oatmeal!
