You may say we celebrated by a new family tradition: North Carolina strawberry picking at Willis Farm. (btw-Their giant rooster was gorgeous! See their fb page.)
In Oregon, strawberry beauties are not ready till next month, thus it was a yummy treat to us Oregonians. It was a little different not being in a "normal" strawberry field with mud and smashed berries. Here in NC the rows are lined with straw and black sheeting to keep them draining well? I am not sure. It looked like it was frying the berries in the sun, but we still found some good ones!
In about 45 minutes we picked A LOT. We thought they were a little cheaper than $1.50 per pound!! Whoops...$55 later! It was well worth it. They are great with my THM diet. Lydia has already made chocolate strawberries, strawberry bars and even strawberry pie. Props to her and Dad- I didn't have to wash a single one. ;)
Good times with our kids. I treasure every moment.
