What to do ....in the Summer? Berry picking

If you live in the PNW, the first thing you do in the morning is check the weather report....because looking out your window doesn't always give a person the whole picture.  The weather can change on a dime, my friends.  Like this whole week, the reports said rain, rain, rain.  And, thank the stars, it's been sunny, sunny, sunny, and even warm!  Yahoo for warmth!

If you are a sandals and socks person (meaning a true Northwesterner!)  you drop everything when the sun comes out.  We did that today after the fog lifted and headed to Biringer farm which is a few miles away for us. Notice above, we are like moles.  Pierce can hardly open his eyes when the sun is out.

Can you see the beauty of these strawberries?  Wish you could taste them!  I will entice you a bit.  These berries are at their peak- big, fully mature redness, a tad soft but not hard, sweeter than sugar, and ready for any recipe, or just plain because plain is God's perfectness!

Biringer Farm in Arlington, Wa has berries that won't last much longer.  Maybe a week or so.  But there are tons left.  Come get them soon for a fun outing.  We are happy campers with our berry loot!
