Oh, Strawberry Fields!

There are so many things that I love about New Hampshire that I sometimes don't know where to begin. For right now, my two favorite things are our wonderful beaches (way better than TX) and the abundance of Pick-Your-Own farms.

Right now strawberry season is in full swing and about a week ago we all piled into the car and headed out to our favorite farm. There were 2 fields, and rows and rows of yummy strawberries. We picked strawberries for awhile and somehow ended up with 8 lbs to take home and eat to our hearts content. 

Which one should he pick?

The good ones were all underneath. Perfect for crouching Christopher.

The perfect strawberry!  (and it tasted perfect ,too)

First sweet taste

Aiden's turn!

Then there was the "mad" face when it was all gone.

We managed to slice, bake, crush, freeze, giveaway and eat all 8 lbs of those yummy berries.  Headed back out this weekend with Chris' department for more home-grown fun!  Not quite as many this time.

And, finally, I am counting down the days to this:
