Strawberry picking

This morning I got up early and went to Hazeltine's, a great "u-pick" strawberry farm near Janesville. Their berries are HUGE this year, which made picking fast. They're delicious too. I'm going to make shortcake for Lauren and Eric's visit today, and then make lots of freezer jam and put a few berries aside for the rum drinks Kyle likes when it's hot.

The best part of picking this year was that soon after I started, my friend Barb showed up 4 rows down from me. I switched rows so we could chat while we picked. It was great to see her, and it's always more fun to work with a friend.
