Strawberry Fields Forever

Our neighbor owns strawberry fields, and his wife, Lupita, invited us to go pick strawberries yesterday. I'm not quite sure I understood correctly, but she made it seem like it was the end of the strawberry season. It sure looked that way when we showed up to the field and there was not a worker in sight. However, there were plenty of strawberries to be picked!

And allow me to be very transparent by showing you a picture for which I was not ready, the wind was blowing, and I was in the middle of telling my mom to "just take a picture of my hands".
 Lupita was out there with us. Her goal was to look specifically for the biggest strawberries.
Oh, I guess we had time for this cheesy photo.
 We quickly filled our little buckets and went home with un monton of strawberries!!
After taking them home it was time to clean and hull the berries. And eat some in the process.
Many hands make light work. We drove there, picked, cleaned, and hulled in an hour and a half. Not bad!


  1. I am so jealous! That looks like so much fun!

  2. This looks like a great time! I went strawberry picking years ago and it was amazing, I definitely want to go again!
