Over the weekend I took the boys out to the strawberry field to pick berries for our freezer jam. They were so excited to pick the berries that I thought I just may get a ton picked. HAHA Well Lukas started off doing good until he realized he could eat them. After that he was great company as he switched between the rows of berries finding the "perfect strawberry" to eat. Jaren and I did have to tell him several times to quit eating the berries we had already picked and to pick his own. Jaren on the otherhand gave me about 20 mintues of picking. I thought he did pretty good. He then did a GREAT job telling ME where there were good strawberries to pick. We ended up picking 15.5 pounds in a little less than a hour. I was then informed that it was lunch time and we needed to go home. Both of them took turns helping me get the berries ready and turning them into jam. We ended up with 18 pints so I think we should be more than set for winter. =) Some of our yummy strawberries Jaren helping me mash the berries Lukas was a excellent "musher" Doesn't this just make you want a PB&J sandwich?
