Strawberry Picking!

Hi all!  Yesterday, Mom took Georgia and I strawberry picking!  Elizabeth would have come, but she had schoolwork to do.  Blea.
 If you didn't know it already, I just LOVE strawberries, so I was super excited!
 We grabbed a carton and headed out to the fields.
 "Oo, this one looks good!" I said, grabbing another strawberry.
 Georgia had carrying duty.
 Aren't strawberries just delicious looking?
 "This little flower is pretty." Georgia commented.
 "I like looking at the strawberries better." I said.  "Maybe that flower will become a strawberry!  Though pollination and bees and stuff."
"Hmm . . . I guess it's possible." Georgia replied.
 Actually, we were kind of late in the strawberry season, so there weren't as many as if we went in, say, February.
 But that doesn't mean there weren't some beauties!
 If you can tell by the bright, harsh sunlight, the day was super hot.
"Alright, girls, let's go pick some blueberries now." Mom said.
"Huh?" I said. "I thought we were here to pick strawberries."
"Weren't you paying any attention in the car?" Georgia questioned me. "Strawberries aren't the only fruit around."
"It's the best one!"
"Sure, sure." Georgia may have rolled her eyes like a annoying older sister, but I'm hoping for the best. "Let's go."
 However, it was nice and shady.
 And blueberries are pretty.  Not as nice as strawberries, though.
 "Let's pick some blueberries." Georgia said, handing me the carton.
 "This one looks good." my sister said.
 Look at all those yummy berries!
Have you ever been berry picking?
P.S. For those of you who are curious, Elizabeth will update soon!  She has lots of schoolwork and is trying get it all.  Homeschooling isn't all fun and games.


  1. Mmmmmm strawberries and blueberries!! YUM!!!! I love berry picking!! Though i normally eat more than I pick... >.<

  7. Hey! I nominated you for the Your Too Sweet For Your Own Good Award over at my blog

  8. I have been strawberry picking before and remembered it was really fun! Nice photos! Enjoyed reading the photostory!


  9. I love fresh strawberries. They are the best. It's too early here for them. Spring has been too cold.

  10. I've never been officiously berry picking, but when we go to nurseries where they sell berry plants, they sometimes let us eat the berries. Yum!

  11. Yes!!! I go berry picking every summer, and then my mom and I make the berries into jams, jellies, and pies. We don't pick berries until august though, because that when they are usually ready around where I live. I hope you had a good time, it looked like a blast!
