Freshly Picked Strawberries - June 11, 2010


How's this for a Friday treat? The rain threatened to foil our plans, but despite a late start, my friend Melissa and I headed south of town to Lorence's Berry Farm for some U-pick 'em goodness. Melissa is the pro and remembered the important things like bug spray and buckets to sit on while we picked. We were welcomed warmly with baskets and encouragement to eat our fill while picking, which was good because I skipped breakfast and we picked straight through lunch. I returned home with 15 1/4 pounds of shiny red berries, of which many will be frozen for upcoming smoothies. As for the rest, I have a fun task ahead of me this weekend, researching recipes for fresh strawberries. In fact, Dinner Clubbers, you just might see these again, in slightly different form, in subsequent Friday posts.

If any of you are interested in a "pick your own" adventure this summer, check here for farms near you.
