picking strawberries ~
Do you have a childhood memory of picking strawberries? When I was a kid, many moons ago, my memories of picking berries were mainly grabbing a cup out of the cupboard and heading down the driveway and going along the old highway picking wild strawberries along the ditch line. It took quite a while to fill my little cup with the wild berries.
Fortunately, for my daughter and her daughters ... they get to head out to the patch on the edge of the garden to fill their container... and it doesn't take hours to fill. Here's what they had picked in about 10 minutes time.
Staci has a beautiful little patch of ever-bearing strawberries that keeps them in berries all summer long right up until it freezes in the fall. That makes this little berry picker very happy!
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
