Strawberry pickin'

Yesterday, the closest thing to a day off I take these days, we got up in the morning and decided to go strawberry picking. There were lots of other things we probably needed to be doing, but sometimes, you just have to take a break.

The farmers markets have started carrying strawberries, so I figured it wouldn't be any trouble to find a you-pick place. There was an ad in our paper for a strawberry farm, so we drove down there, and sure enough, the plants were loaded with enormous, succulent berries.

Unfortunately, they wouldn't let us pick them. They'd sell us boxes that they had picked (and they looked good), but that's just not the same to a five-year-old (or to this 28-year-old, either). Might nice folk they were, and told us about the only you-pick farm in the area, which turned out to be down in Wilmington.

So we went, and got lots of berries, the gigantic, juicy, perfectly ripe sort. Yum, yum. We love it down here.
