Strawberry Picking

Strawberry picking time is much anticipated in our house. We love fresh strawberries, and picking them is almost as good as eating them. When we called the strawberry patch on Thursday, they said they didn't officially open until Saturday but they wouldn't turn us away. So, we were the first customers of the year and had the whole patch to ourselves!

Rohan spent the whole time sleeping.

More pictures of the farm.

After washing the berries and counting by twos . . .

. . . we ate strawberry shortcake. Mmmm!


  1. Is that Maple Lane? Our berries here at home are green still...I figured theirs were too. My boys loved berry picking last year.

  2. Wow! I can't believe they are open already! We will have to go next week sometime.

  3. Sadie, it is. They said it's an early berry and they have some that are ready later too.

  4. Great pictures! We will have to wait until end of June to pick them here. ~elsa

  5. YUM! How are you guys getting strawberries in April? Ours don't come until late June. Beautiful pics and I bet those were the best shortcakes ever!


  6. My absolute favorite time of year.... we shove fresh strawberries into our faces for weeks on end but sadly they won't be ready here for another two months!!

    Your photos are amazing!

  7. I cannot wait for the strawberry fields to open here:) Very good pictures!
