It's Strawberry Pickin' Time!

These strawberry fields are about 10 minutes from our house and we never knew about them until Jennifer told us last year! This year we wanted to check it out ourselves. When we drove up on Saturday, we knew we were at the right place because all you could see was rows of rearends sticking up in the air. It was pretty funny. Then, we joined them. It was a lot of fun to pick strawberries. I cut up a bunch of them tonight and put sugar over them to create a syrup. We invited our neighbors Nan and John over and poured them over Sara Lee pound cake with whip cream and they brought over some vanilla bean ice cream. Yum. It was soooo good! But, we still have almost two full gallons of strawberries! I guess I will be putting some up tomorrow night!

This is what we took home!

Here we are picking berries!
