Strawberry Picking!

Yesterday Carole and I went in search of some strawberries, which I pick every year.  The first farm we went to we were placed in a patch of mostly weeds and small berries that didn’t taste like anything.  After picking my $3.10 worth we decided we were going somewhere else….So we set out for a new farm that we had never been to in Clintonville.  As we were pulling in we could tell this was going to be a much better place.. It started with the sinage, the view of the building and farms were immaculate, and then the big pole building was set up well, the tractor with the nice wagon pulled right up and took you off to the most beautiful row of strawberries!  I know I have never been so excited about rows of strawberries before, but after the weed patch it was heaven…we picked our 2 flats a piece…Oh I forgot to mention..all this was 5 cents cheaper per lb! We then had lunch at the corner diner and we were off to stop at the antique shop we saw on the way in….but it was still closed at noon, even though the sign said 10-5pm..bummer… Well I bagged 12 quarts of berries for our favorite strawberry slush and other things, made a fresh fruit salad with supper and still have a big bowl of fresh berries in the fridge! I also hung out sheets and a few loads of wash out on my new clothesline.  I didn’t think I would be so excited to have one, especially since I was planning a nice fountian there, but I am trying to be a little more GREENER when possible.  Now if I could only get some chickens….lol…Started working on my last block of the week, and have a little left to do today…Looks like rain today here, so I will probably get more sewing done.  Later….

    The strawberries look great! Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend. Can’t wait until you post the new block of the months! Looking forward to finding out what they are. I have my guesses, and am waiting (impatiently) to see :o)

    The strawberries are always great there in Clintonville. I worked in those exact fields when I was in junior high and high school. You drive right past my parents house to get there. Also, I know the antique shop you are talking about. It’s just O.K…but when it comes to antiques you never know what you’re going to find.
