This morning Mr. T and I were discussing what we needed to accomplish with our Saturday. We each had certain tasks we hoped to accomplish before day's end. We also talked about doing something totally unnecessary, but fun -- going strawberry picking together. We seldom do this sort of thing together, although at the start of summer we often say we would like to. The season goes by without us having done the activities we talked about.
So today we decided to go for it! We drove to a U-pick strawberry field in Vermont (a lovely drive in itself) and spent less than an hour picking berries. We ended up with nearly twenty pounds of beautiful red jewels!
|Mr. T said we must get at least 10 pounds; the price per pound was cheaper that way. He guessed we might have 14; I thought more like 20.|

|My wonderful hubby began hulling and washing these right after lunch.|
|Half of the berries are now in the freezer becoming individually quick frozen.|
