It Has Begun!

It is that time of year!  The time of aching backs, sticky fingers, satisfied bellies, overabundance of Vitamin C's, has arrived, all caused by these delightful little red globes of goodness known as Strawberries! 

So far we have picked 4 times (every other day) 

(Faith found this darling pillow at an estate sale and it was the perfect prop for a Strawberry photo shoot) 

The first day we had a humble amount of 1 quart, and the next two pickings we acquired 3 each time....

But tonight, with 4 people picking and lots of time, we gathered 17 quarts of strawberries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has begun for sure.

Yummy! We have begun picking strawberries in earnest as well. Strawberry shortcake was in order last night.

Mmmmmm.. Strawberry shortcake! :) will have to put that on our list. So far this year we have only eaten them plain (lots of them) and made a Strawberry Rhubarb crisp for Father's day! I am sure there will be many more strawberry desserts to come.
