Since we have been working to remove all processed food from our diet, I have been learning how to can everything I can. The last week the strawberries in the area became ripe last Monday, so on Tuesday I headed out to a local organic pick your own strawberries with 7 kids.
It took us about 2 hours to get them picked and ended up with almost 100 pounds of strawberries, no joke!! So if you were wondering what 100 pounds of strawberries looked like today is your lucky day ;-)!
All the kids had so much fun, and there were tons of ripe ones on all the plants!
Gabe had fun, but picked a lots of the green ones 😉 .
Here are all that we picked. With 8 of us it took about 2 hours to pick almost 100 pounds!
All 7 crates of strawberries!! As you can see even soon after we got home there were tons already eaten by the kids. Within the first day we had almost 10 pounds gone!
Of course since picking 100 pounds of strawberries we have spent a better part of the week preserving strawberries, making jam, and making lots of great strawberry recipes! Stop over later in the week for some of our delicious strawberry recipes.
