Strawberry Picking

This past weekend I went to visit some friends in Virginia. While there we went strawberry picking. We were told there weren’t many left because it was the end of the strawberry season, but we managed to get almost a whole bucket full!

Let me tell you, these were some of the best tasting strawberries I’d ever had! They were small but juicy and fresh and sweet. On, and they made some delicious frozen margaritas. πŸ™‚

  1. few things are as good as some fresh picked, ripe strawberries.

    • SimpleCatholic says

      So true, that! It almost spoils me from being able to buy strawberries from the supermarket ever again!

  2. Fresh picked smaller strawberries are so much more tasty than those obscenely huge strawberries you see at the store. We have a few strawberry plants and have noticed that the flavor is superior to anything store bought. The birds think so, too!

    • SimpleCatholic says

      I agree, I couldn’t believe how tasty these strawberries were. I bet the birds do. What do you use to keep them away?

  3. those look yummy! I bet they are an older variety, small & sweet instead of big & hollow! Yum!

    • SimpleCatholic says

      I don’t know, the ladies who worked at the farm said that the berries at the beginning of the season where bigger than these. Personally, I think they probably didn’t taste as good. πŸ™‚

  4. Those look delicious! Some of my favorite child hood memories are of picking strawberries,

  5. Wow you got a lot! My plants this year gave us a crop of about ten berries.

    • SimpleCatholic says

      Sorry you didn’t get many berries, maybe you’ll have better luck next year.

      Now that I’ve had these, I’m tempted to grow my own berries next year. We’ll see.

  6. Love strawberry season. My WW is up too.

  7. Yummm — they look wonderful.

  8. Yum! Looks like shortcake could be on the menu!
