Funny how I just posted my 200th post, and yet I still consider this my “new blog.” But now I’ve come full circle — the first post on this blog is about Strawberry Picking 2012! Hopefully there will be no more blogging troubles in the future and I can have this blog forever without running out of picture space. Probably not, but one can dream, right? Ok, enough about blogging… this post is about strawberry picking!
I looked at the calendar last week, only to realize that mid-June was upon us. I’m still trying to figure out how that happened! I decided if we were going to cross strawberry picking off our summer bucket list, it would have to be soon!
So, we made a somewhat spontaneous trip back to Cal Poly for our third annual strawberry pick! We were blessed enough to have friends join us, even though it was last-minute! The kids sucked on some honey sticks from the Farm Store while we waited for our friends to arrive.
The pickins were slim… very slim! Literally 5 minutes after we arrived, a busload of Chinese tourists pulled-up and picked all the strawberries. They left just as our friends arrived. Thankfully, everyone got at least one strawberry. (And, thankfully the kids had a blast playing together!) But, my visions of homemade strawberry jam were thwarted.
Just look at these cuties:
And, the “babies;” too precious! They were so excited about each other. 🙂
Next year we will have to try in May. Or, we’ll have to have our own strawberry garden! (That may be coming soon… I’ll keep you updated!)
