Saturday we headed to the orchard down the road from our house. They are always at the Farmers Market and make the most incredible strawberry jam. It really will change your life.
So we decided to go pick our own strawberries from them.
Charis thought it was fun to hold the bucket, even though she had no clue what it was for. Then as I started to put strawberries in there, she realized it was her snack bucket.
After I made sure they didn’t use pesticides, I decided to at least take the bucket from her so she didn’t eat everything I picked. But it didn’t take her long to figure out how to find the ripe ones for herself.
Of course the boys made it into a competition of sorts…here’s the best strawberry of the day:
All in all, it was a successful day and I have a freezer full of strawberries now!
