Time to pick the strawberries


In East Tennessee, it is time to pick strawberries.

 

 Our favorite spot to pick any fruit was full of strawberries, the best strawberries in 10 years. 


So my sweet daughter and her fiancé wanted to pick strawberries. We would whip up some strawberry jam for their out of town guest baskets.



Searching the field for the best strawberries…



Found some!!


The fields were filled with kids!!!



Look at that concentration. 



They were very earnest in their picking.
He is so proud of his strawberry, he holds it like a prized bass. 

 
Her biggest strawberry looked like some lips. 


We picked 13 pounds of strawberries….


Enough for two batches of jam, which I am making tomorrow



A full tray of strawberries to freeze.



And enough to eat!!!


Great job guys!!!
