I’m not usually good about deviating from my list. Every once in awhile, it just can’t be helped. Today was one of those days. I was zipping along to tackle my list before noon and I notice 2 cars in the parking lot at the strawberry fields. I’ve been waiting for them to open and BOOM, they were open. Naturally, I had to take advantage of the situation. This chick turned the car around at the next light and headed back to get in on that action. It was early and the weather was just perfect for picking.
They were perfectly sweet and just the right size and ripeness I enjoy. I loaded up my bucket with my fresh picks and got right back to my list. I got to enjoy the smell of fresh strawberries while attending to the rest of my errands. I was tempted to nibble on them but managed to stay distracted long enough to get them home safe and sound. Now I have some in the fridge and frozen to keep me happy for awhile.
I love this time of year! So much fun stuff to do in the spring weather. Have you been strawberry picking yet?
