Strawberry Time!



This past Saturday, Mr. T and I took an hour and a half and went strawberry picking at a U-pick farm in Vermont.  We didn't really have the time, but we were out of frozen strawberries from the previous time we'd gone in 2012.  Since we had to be in the area anyway (just across the river in NH) we decided to go on over and pick some berries.  What a lovely, tranquil spot.  We enjoyed the breezy sunshine and just the time to be together and accomplish something worthwhile. 
We got over 30 pounds of strawberries
These are the flats from 2012.  This year's were filled much fuller!
 and at this point they are all washed, hulled, individually quick frozen and stashed in the freezer.  We usually make strawberry sauce on Sundays when the granddaughters are with us, to go with our breakfast waffles.  Now we are all set with strawberries for many Sundays to come!
