Today Hannah and I got to have some fun time together. We went strawberry picking! I missed out on picking strawberries last year because we waited till too late in the season. So I was determined not to miss out this year. But this year since we have had such cool, damp weather the strawberries have been slow ripening, and most of the farms weren't open yet! We did find one though (obviously! ha!) and had a great time. The weather was perfect and it was just wonderful to spend a few hours, just the two of us.
We enjoyed snacking on strawberries all afternoon and had some fresh strawberries on ice cream after dinner. I also whipped up a batch of some strawberry freezer jam. And we are just freezing a bunch to have on hand for making smoothies and other yummy treats.
We are planning on going picking again in a couple of weeks so we can make some more jam and stock up the freezer. It was so much fun and we LOVE strawberries! Looking forward to picking other berries too as summer progresses!
