Perfect Picking Day
We had the most amazing weather on Monday....high 60's with a breeze....amazing!! So we took full advantage and took the kids strawberry picking. We love to do it but the weather is usually hot and humid and no fun at all.
Mitchell had to get the whining and complaining out of his system a little...so he sat down in the middle of the field and took a moment. He was quickly feeling all better.
Isn't the view amazing. The farm is right on the top of a hill overlooking the Hudson river valley.
It is possible that more berries went in mouths than in baskets!!!! i caught him red handed, literally(below)!!!
Look at them! They are like little ruby red gems. I have plans for these guys...shortcake, jam, smoothies. I will share some of the results later.
His hands were just as they should be after picking all those warm, sweet, juicy berries. I love all those little wrinkles and despite him being 5 they still look like little little person hands to me. The rest of us were just the same color...i even had stained finger nails.
