Strawberry Fields Forever...




I did it! I got some freshly picked strawberries from the strawberry field and I'm going to OD....if you don't hear from me in a few days, I've exploded LOL


(Mommy, what are these? I hope I don't have to eat them)

I'm so excited. I feel rich like a queen, a Strawberry Queen - here, try one!



I'm going to go back in a few weeks to get more. The field will be open till end of May. They charge $1.99 per pound if you pick them yourself and the ready picked ones are:

$16 for a flat (what I got)
$9 for a gallon
$2.50 for a quart

That's cheaper than the grocery store and best of all, super fresh!

Those look so gorgeous and so temping and so ripe and so wonderful. YUM. Does Gizzy eat any?

Nothing tastes as good as strawberries picked by you. Enjoy!

Ann said...

Oh boy do those ever look delicious. Glad you got to go. Fresh picked strawberries are always so much better than the ones you buy in the grocery store.

Oh Doris! Those strawberries look wonderful! I wish I lived close so I could get some. There is someone who drives to Florida and picks them and brings them back here to sell. My husband has bought some in the past. She didn't come this year. My kids love strawberries and will eat half a flat in a day if I let them!

Dearest Doris,

ENJOY those super-fruits; they're great antioxidants and just yummy. Especially when picked fresh.
Have a lovely week.

Mom wishes she were close enough to buy a few flats. She used to pick them by the flat in MA and CT in June. She is headed to Costco tomorrow to get some since they have the best tasting ones here - and even they aren't that good. Gizzy, we don't think you need to worry about eating them, Mom will be very happy not to share them. None of us pups likes strawberries, but Ciara and Thunder LOVE blueberries.

Enjoy those berries, have a bowlful for Mom.

Oh, my, Doris! Those look soooo good and they always bring back memories of growing up and picking strawberries with my Oma, my mom and sister. And eating as many as we picked... Yum!!! Hope you are doing well!! Love, Silke

Ginny said...

They are really beautiful! And so is Giz beside them. I'm thinking he won't have anything to do with them.

Karin said...

Just the right size!! Yum! You'll probably freeze or make some jam! Enjoy them to the fullest!

Ginny said...

Yes Doris, the harlequin clowns intrigue me. I think that everyone would be interested in seeing them and finding out their history and meaning!

Oh wow!!! Love those strawberries! They look all fresh and great!!!
Enjoy your time! xo

Kristine said...

Those look so good! I can't wait until we can get some up here.

Oh my, what a feast to be had! I love strawberries and I'll bet these are delicious. They use to grow strawberries on the farm by us but no more so now we have to rely on the stores. Enjoy.

Anke said...

I can't wait to go strawberry picking here - there's nothing better than fresh and local food!

Mindy said...

YUM!! Looking delicious!

Hi Doris, I noticed your comments on a couple of blogs tonight and saw that you live in GA also. From reading your profile, we share many likes.

These strawberries look very good. A strawberry smoothie for breakfast would be a real treat.

Nice to meet you!

Liebe Doris,

Na die Azaleas die ich in den letzten zwei Tagen gepostet habe sind nicht klein. Grosse Blumen und die findet man auch nicht im freien. Wir haben vor gute zehn Jahre dafür je Stück fünfzig Dollar bezahlt bei eine spezialitäten nursery in Louisiana. Den Link gab ich auch dazu. Nur fand ich nicht dieselbe Rhododendrons (scientific name) auf die Liste aber vielleicht gibt es die doch noch.
Ich sah auf mein Feedjit Live das du in der Gegend von Fitzgerald lebst. Da waren wir öfters zur besuch bei Freunde! In Fitzgerald wohnt auch noch Gudrun Mills (Mann ist Ben Mills, Anwalt) und sie ist aus Berlin glaube ich.
Lieber Gruss,

Mariette
