Anyway, I set my alarm for 30 minutes so I know when to stop picking, otherwise I have no idea how long I'm there. Then, after 30 minutes I look at my box and think "that's not very many" so I pick for another 15-20 minutes, then I look at my box and think "wow, that's way too many strawberries". I'm going to write myself a note for next year "STOP picking after 30 minutes and WALK AWAY!"
I picked nearly 10 pounds of berries and spent $22 ($2.25/#). That will make a lot of daiquiris and shortcake!
|A perfect specimen|
|10 pounds worth|
My once-a-year daiquiri was good but had a lot of foam, I think it's the new blender. And I need to remember to add sugar along the rim, before I fill the glass!
The shortcakes were delicious.
I gave some of the berries to Lori, as well as Wendy & Dan. I will be putting most of the rest in the freezer.
I stopped to check out the blueberry bushes on my way out. They are loaded!
At least I know where to go if ours don't produce well.
Thanks for stopping by...
