Summer Berries

One of my favorite summer traditions is going strawberry picking at a local berry farm. The boys love riding a tractor to the fields, and I love all the memories of picking berries with my grandma when I was a kid. We pick for an hour, eating more than we collect, of course, and we always have a hard time stopping... Lifting the plants to find those crimson beauties is like treasure hunting--it's impossible to just walk away! This year we made two double batches of strawberry jam, countless containers of "ice cream berries," and four pies. Enjoy the pictures.

Happy 4th of July!


  1. These pictures are fabulous...yum...that strawberry pie looks have quite the talent on the photography side too. I so enjoy your pictures that you put with your blogs. Reading your blog posts is like taking a sip of my favorite coffee on a breezy morning...just a delight. Thanks for posting.

  2. Oh, Nicole.

    You weave words
    with art.

    You bless!

  3. Thank you! You ladies are so sweet. I'm actually posting more pictures tomorrow... I consider myself a wanna-be photographer.

    Oh, and the strawberry pie was VERY scrumptious. If you lived closer... ;)
