Strawberry Pickin'

The boys had a half-day Friday, so as soon as the bell rang, I whisked them away for an hour in the strawberry patch.  It was a beautiful day, and rows and rows of deep red, juicy strawberries were just waiting for us.  We overdid...overpicked, but the eating is good!  PFB wanted to buy a little strawberry plant of his own, and it's currently sitting by the window in his room.  He has a sleepover tonight and wanted to make sure that, in his absence, I would take care of the watering.  I told him I had it covered.

I love that tree!

We picked 2 1/2 buckets!

I love strawberries but have never actually picked them.

I bet I'd eat them all before I paid for 'em.

Green Girl in Wisconsin said...

Strawberries already? Oh dear, we're MONTHS from that point.

Stacy said...

Oh, yum!

Can't wait until berries are ripe here.

Thanks, Sarakastic. :)

That would be a problem, David. Unless you were pre-weighed yourself.

They'll all be gone in three weeks, Green Girl & Stacy. And then I'll be waiting for the peaches.
