A couple days ago my friend Jackie asked if I wanted to go to a you-pick blueberry farm today. I wasn’t sure at first because I knew last night was going to be a late one, but the more I thought about it the more awesome it sounded. Then this morning she learned that it wasn’t really blueberry season yet. So she found a perfectly viable alternative, and we picked some strawberries! I thought it was going to be expensive at $1 a pound, but how often do you get fresh-from-the-farm strawberries? Worth it. I got a bunch – going to make a pie tomorrow, some just for eating, a couple to give away and probably some to freeze. Filled a whole bucket and it felt like a good 8 to 10 pounds to me, but including a green pepper my total was just under $5. Sweeeeeet. Here’s the whole lot.
Then I pulled out some of the prettier ones and tried to get artsy.
This one wasn’t to eat, but he was so cute I had to bring him home.
And this one looks like it’s wearing a hat.
Then I ate ’em. Then I wondered why I only took shots of single berries, so we had some group action.
I’m hoping to make the pie tomorrow, I’ll post about that too.
