strawberry season

Photobucket
finally, the rain has taken a hiatus (but, i hear it's coming back). some of my favorite gals and i went and picked 22 lbs of strawberries to make some jam (which will happen tomorrow). we brought along our 4 boys and had a great time chatting, getting dirty, and munching.

they were very juicy, indeed.

the mud wasn't as good. it was a good thought though, if he could eat the strawberries off the ground, why not the ground itself?

all these little boys had fun, got real dirty, and had a little snack. what cuties!

Super cute pics!! Looks like you guys had a blast! Yay for strawberries! I just bought two flats at a $1 a pound the other day and made jam, mashed 10 cups and froze them for syrup and then cut some up and froze them for smoothies! I love summer!

how much are U-pick strawberries in oregon? Our 20 plants we got last year have only given us 3 cups or so. It's only the second year. Next year should be better.
