The most wonderful time of the year.

It's that time of the year. Strawberry season. We spent the afternoon Saturday filling buckets with delectable little berries. We'll be making jelly and shortcakes over the next couple of days.

I don't know how many years you have to repeat a ritual before it becomes a family tradition, but we pick strawberries at a local farm every year since the kids were old enough to eat strawberries off of the plant ( I think they were around 1 and a half).

Good stuff.

Every fall we take our family to a local farm where for $30 you can pick as much produce as you want. We leave with several wagons full of produce every year. Talk about a great deal! We can and freeze all we can and then pass the rest out to neighbors and friends. Now I'm gonna have to find a berry patch so we have a spring tradition as well. Thanks for the idea!

That's what I'm talking about! It cost us about $20.00 - But we'll have as much strawberry for the next year as we can stand.

It's awesome!
