Strawberry Picking

What a week this has been. I had hoped to get a post up yesterday, but things got crazy yet again. I'm happy to say Miss Zoe is doing well. The vet said she has an ulcer on her eye. It should be healed up in about 2-3 days. Poor pup.

So Mother's Day we decided to go to a local farm and pick strawberries. Last year I made freezer jam. I like using the method as described on Make and Takes Blog . My oldest son loves this jam and it was nice into the fall and winter to have these in the freezer to pull out for pb&j sammies.

Here are some pix from our strawberry picking.

 Logan got down and straight to work.
 Logan liked helping put them in the basket.
 Here is a shot of the crop. Up close and personal.

 Sawyer joined in the picking as well.  He did a great job with picking them.
Can you see dh's finger pointing at him to say "No, don't throw strawberries!"  And as you can see from Sawyer's outstretched arm he threw one.  Or maybe four.  Then we got the heck out of dodge so he wouldn't hit someone with a strawberry and before we got kicked out and permanently banned from the place. LOL

I think this last picture sums up pretty well what it is like to take a two year old and four year old boy strawberry picking.  It wouldn't be strawberry picking without squishing strawberries.

Hope you are having a great day in your neck of the woods!
