We Picked Strawberries!

Posted on

The title pretty much sums it up. Brent had today off, so we wanted to find something fun to do outside to enjoy the gorgeous weather. When I got off work at 2, we headed over to Hilger’s Farm & Market for their U-pick strawberries. We both had a really good time and we picked about 5lbs. of strawberries for $4.50.

We took a wagon hitched to a tractor out to the fields.

Brent and I dug in when we got them home and washed a few. They were so sweet and warm and delicious! Yum! We’ve definitely gotten our share of local produce lately. πŸ™‚

Have a great weekend!
