Our family has NEVER been to the strawberry patch - can you believe it!? Which is crazy because its only like ten minutes from our house!
The strawberry picking season opened yesterday at Roca Berry Farms. So we loaded up the children and headed out on our little adventure.
It was HOT and dirty and there's lots of work and crawling around involved in getting those little nuggets of sweet goodness. BUT WELL WORTH IT!
We only lasted about a half hour out in the field (going around noon wasn't the smartest choice- I'm guessing first thing in the morning feels much better!)- but is was a FUN half hour. Lots of talking and laughing and me keeping the troops on task.
We ended up with a basket just shy of 8 lbs. They were cleaned, divided into 2 cup portions and thrown in the freezer. Can't wait for strawberry shakes, smoothies, shortcake, topped on some yummy cheesecake or even just vanilla icecream! YUM! YUM! YUM!
