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