Strawberries are officially in season. I found a patch of wild ripe berries on our property this week and our local u-pick strawberry farm started letting us pick today. The wild ones are so tiny and taste like water, but my younger son really likes them. I think it’s exciting to pick and eat from our own property.
We just returned from the u-pick farm with three baskets full. The boys are good workers and want their own “load” to eat. One year sure makes a difference. Last year our little four-year old guy was tired quickly, but this year he mustered his own basket-load, picked just for him to eat as he has warned us.
Anyhow, we all ate plenty. I’ve got a batch in the freezer and hope to go again on Wednesday. I’ve got a mile long list of strawberry goodness to make, muffins, pie (for Papa especially), jam, and smoothies for starters.
