Celebrate Summer

Went strawberry picking today At Heeman's ,
about 10 minutes from our home.

The berries were ripe and ready for picking,
Jennifer is holding the first one going into our
basket(or Jill's mouth)

The farm put us on the outside row so we step
on the plants. Had to watch Jillian so she didn't
tramp all over them. Jen was a terrific experienced
picker, Jill she just ate and enjoyed. The strawberry
farm didn't make any money off us. Jill was too cute
she would take a bite off the berry an throw it back
into our basket.
Jenny was picking so fast I could hardly keep up,
she went to the farm yesterday with her class, so lots of
expertise her.

A little treat of frozen yogurt and strawberries
for a job well done!!


We are going to make strawberry jam tomorrow, can't wait!

Such fun memories you're making!
Reminds me of when I was a little girl, we used to go all the time and LOVED making strawberry jam too. Enjoy!

Don't know how to make jam...but I love to grow strawberries! We used to pick blackberries in GA when I was a girl. They grew everywhere in our neighborhood. We never had enough left to make anything tho!
