We went to the local strawberry patch this afternoon and picked strawberries! It was fun! Justin was mad because he didn't want to go. "I don't wanna pick stawbarries! I hate stawbarries!" But he had fun once he got started. Jared was in strawberry heaven! That boy loves strawberries like nobody's business. We were there maybe 10-15 minutes and ended up with 3 pecks! Well, I only bought and brought home 2 pecks. My sister bought the other one plus she picked 2 pecks of her own. I filled up my basket (1 peck) and didn't even get all the way down one row! And they had rows & rows of them! I have put up 2 qts. in the freezer for now. Tomorrow I'm going to make some pound cake & have strawberry shortcake. At some point before they start going bad I'm going to make some strawberry jam. I may even make Jared some strawberry pancakes for breakfast in the morning. And of course we'll just eat a bunch of them. I wish I had remembered to take my camera to get pics of the boys in the strawberry patch. Oh well, maybe next time.

My bio Dad is a strawberry farmer. We recently started talking again and the boys LOVED picking strawberries. I even took my nieces over one time and they still talk about going and picking strawberries. There is NOTHING like FRESH strawberries right off of the bed. YUM!! Strawberries are my FAVORITE! Garrett kept calling them apples. Crazy kid!

I FINALLY got all the strawberries washed, cut up, and frozen. Now I have to figure out when I'm going to make my jam. I may do it this weekend while dh is working nights. The pound cake with fresh strawberries & whipped cream was DIVINE! Yum-O!! And guess what? I went out and bought 2 strawberry plants yesterday. I just can't wait to have the pleasure of growing my own! I just hope I don't kill them!
