Strawberry Picking

Last week Ashlee and I took the kids strawberry picking at Berry Patch Farms.  It was so much fun.  I couldn't stop telling Ashlee how much fun I was having.  The kids did great picking (and mostly eating) strawberries.  It is an organic farm, so we could just pick and eat strawberries in the field.  I picked two flats worth and have kept busy using them up this week.  I'll have to share some of the recipes I've been using.

There is nothing better than picking your own strawberries (and dreaming of doing it whilst in the middle of winter in New Zealand!)

Oh gosh, I love strawberry picking!! It's end of season for us here in FL though. We're on to blueberries!

Yumm! I just picked up 2 flats of strawberries from a local farm here. I spent the day yesterday making jam and getting berries in the freezer and dehydrator. I still want to try making some fruit leathers in the dehydrator.
