Strawberry Season

May 29:

Strawberry Season has begun. We 3 C's headed to the Patch to pick the Berries this morning. Laden with Strawberries, we returned to the House. Melanie and I washed and stemmed the Berries. Then I placed them on any flat surface we could find that would carry them into the Freezer. Melanie and Richard took them to the Freezers. We will put them in Plastic Bags tomorrow.

We had 3 1/2 Gallons of Strawberries from our 1st picking. We should be picking in 2 more days. Melanie noted that Strawberry Season is about 2 days earlier than last year right here on the Farm.

Richard noted that the Best Strawberries came from the new bed he set up last year. Strawberries from the Old Bed (3 years old) were smaller; some were even harder. We are learning a lot. Isn't that why we came?
