B and I were invited to go strawberry picking last Thursday morning with 2 other homeschool moms and their children. When we arrived, we met some other homeschool moms that we knew who had just finished picking and a few more showed up after us. It was like a homeschool convention, one mom said! :o) We went to Wegmeyer Farms and I have not seen better strawberries than at this place. We have picked at other farms in the Washington, DC area, but this has now become our favorite! There were so many beautiful, ripe, delicious strawberries. We picked 2 buckets and it was hard to stop picking because there were so many to choose from!
With these perfect strawberries, we made jam, shortcake, smoothies and failed at our first attempt at drying. This post seems long enough, already, since I've posted so many pictures, so I will post what we did with our strawberries, separately.
