After much searching, I found an organic strawberry u-pick in Monroe, so a friend and I set off with our boys to pick strawberries! We both like to can and I’m planning to make strawberry jam (trying this honey strawberry jam recipe). She’s got a dehydrator and a big freezer, so has a few more plans. The boys had so much fun! Once they realized that they couldn’t eat the strawberries they picked immediately (there was a fair amount of mud that needed to be washed off), they lost interest in picking and instead traipsed in the mud and did general boy playing “at the farm,” as Ulysses kept repeating. I’m planning on putting our haul up tomorrow, so fingers crossed for setting!
