Strawberry Patch

While Jason's parents were visiting this weekend, we decided to do something new and take advantage of the beautiful weather and the season.  We went to a farm to pick our own strawberries!  We drove out in the country to a beautiful farm that grew organic strawberries and were greeted by the sight of horses and free-range hens.  It definitely helped feed my idyllic view of farm life, even though I do realize that it's probably not as idyllic as it looks.

We all pitched in to pick the strawberries, but I did a bit more photo snapping than picking.

We left with seven, yes seven, pounds of strawberries!  So we've been eating a lot of strawberries around here, folks.  Strawberry salads, strawberry pie, strawberries for snacks...  I'm thinking of making some strawberry shortcake.  It's good that we all like strawberries!  They do look delicious, don't they?
