Garden up date

The garden has been in now for about a month. It was a slow start because we had so much rain during the first few days of June. But now that the sun is out and has been out we are starting to see much more growth!!

Here is our Corn
Peas; which are now almost up to the fencing they grow up.
and Tomatoes.
We didn't have many beans show up so we replanted those and I forgot to get a picture of the onions and peppers. I am really looking forward to enjoying our delicious vegetables.

Strawberry picking

This morning we packed up the mini van and headed out of town to a local U-pick to get our self some delicious strawberries.

I knew with two little ones that I would need some extra hands so I brought 3 (expert) pickers with me to help out.

The girls did an awesome job and picked a good portion of the berries. The boys also did a great job. Here they are just getting started.

Jaelyn was riding in a hiking book bag but it wasn't long before she wanted out to help us.

Lady J was more like quality control once she found the little red berries it wasn't long before her and her little friend Emma were eating away in the field while the rest of us worked.

It was a very fun morning. We were 2 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 kids and 2 babies. We were there for ~ 2 hours and picked 24 quarts of berries!!! Pretty productive bunch if you ask me.

Now off to the kitchen to freeze some, eat some and make jam.
