more strawberries please, Mommy!!!

We drove about an hour or so from home to pick fresh strawberries! This is a real favorite for all so it was worth the drive and effort! It was a beautiful day...worthy of an outside adventure...



Daddy helped pick strawberries and Adrian put them in the basket...for a while...then Big A got brave and starting picking...


Our box was getting a little heavy towards the end...I think we picked a little over 7 pounds...we ate some, shared some, ate some more and I'm going to TRY to make jam! wish me luck!!

Oooh, Fun! You say an hour away, was it in the Hill Country? Just curious where you would go in Texas to a u-pick. Good luck with the jam!

it was 5 miles south of Fredericksburg...so yeah, hill country...the jam didn't solidify very well, but I think it will still be great over vanilla ice cream, waffles or crepes! they also have peach and blackberry picking when the season starts!

I had heard about peach picking places, but not strawberries...some other moms from my church told me about it. I'm making a fruit pizza for our community group tomorrow with some of them...I think I could have picked two boxes and we still would finish them....Cristian and Adrian love them!

The waffle/ice cream thing sounds really good. And sauce for a fruit pizza sounds perfect. I have never made jam, just helped my mom way back when. Applause for giving it a try.
