Field Trip: Strawberry Picking

Last week, Wednesday we went strawberry picking in Navarino.

We ended up picking 35 pounds of strawberries, and who knows how many pounds we ate while picking. IMG_2546

The kids LOVED it. I actually thought they would like it at first and then get bored, but they didn’t. IMG_2552Audrey was a little whiney but I don’t think it had anything to do with the strawberry picking. IMG_2555Alexa kept seeing a song about putting strawberries in her bucket and how much she loved it. IMG_2550Treyton just kept on competing with everyone about who could pick the most, who could pick the biggest and so on and so forth. IMG_2556Once we got home the kids and I got to work right away jamming and freezing our harvest. IMG_2564After two jamming sessions – we have 26 half pints of Strawberry Jam and over 28 cups of frozen strawberries (quartered and whole). IMG_2557I will probably jam at least another 8 cups of strawberries, but we will see when that will actually happen. IMG_2566

Oh Good for you!! I made tons of jam over Father's Day weekend. It's so satisfying isn't it?
