I've crossed off yet another one from my list of summertime goals...strawberry picking. YEE-HAW!!! Yesterday, I stopped at the Walvoord's Berry Farm in Cedar Grove, WI. I have never done this so you can imagine, I was pretty excited.
Let me take you down cause I'm going to ...Strawberry fields. (Thanks Beatles!) Here they are!!! Look at all the bright red fruit below the leaves.
Here are the procedural rules for heading out into the strawberry fields.
These folks are picking and picking and picking! It was very quiet. This is serious business.
Pulling back the leaves revealed beautiful strawberries. My fingers turned bright pink. I couldn't help but eat a few along the way...shhhhh! The box below cost me $5.oo.
And left me with a little creative inspiration. This is my painted strawberry.
Can't wait to make a strawberry pie. I hope to visit again and until then, I will have good memories of strawberry fields forever!
There is no place in the country like Miss Cayce's. It is the most magical place in the LAND! Thank you Miss Cayce's and West Texas for the fabulous FROSTY party this past weekend. Your land is rich in oil...but your people are richer in kindness and hospitality!!! Thank you, thank you for supporting my work, my mission to spread cheer throughout the LAND, for supporting my momma and her battle with Alzheimer's. The donations that you're making to the Alzheimer's Association are so generous.
