Strawberry, Strawberry, What a Strawberry night, gonna go pick some Strawberries on this Strawberry night. Sorry, Sorry inside joke with the family. :)


Sunday was beautiful day here in North Alabamy. Skies were blue, air was warm, slight breeze, yep pretty much a perfect strawberry pickin day.

Syd, her friend Jess, and my friend Melinda, Jessi's mom, went over to a local strawberry farm and just enjoyed the day. Another friend of theirs, Brandon, joined us over there. His MawMaw works in the greenhouse over at the farm. Now Brandon does not "go out" with either of the girls, Syd and him have been together since diapers so we do alot together. They do tend to act like and old married couple though, bickering all the time. On a totally different subject why do they call it "going out"? They're not going anywhere, because they can't drive.

Anyway we walked on out to the fields and we got us a good spot way on out there where no one else was at. If there have not been alot of people in that part then you get some good berries.

You see all those rows up there? All strawberries :)

We found some interesting strawberries out in the field.

Syd thought this one looked like a turtle.

I think this one has cellulite. :)

Before we knew it the temptation had gotten to them, and they started eating the berries.

So they just sat right down there in the patch and ate some berries.

Then this happened.

What you dont see anything, well lets take a closer look shall we. Look close at Jessi's hand.

That would be a strawberry that came hurdling at them from Brandon.
At this point the fight is on!

But before they started acting like a bunch of wild indians, we got some really nice berries.

After the war of the strawberries we go back up toward the green house.
Would you look at those ferns. They are just gorgeous.

While Melinda and I looked around the green house Jessi and Syd decided to catch some rays.

Well that was our day at the strawberry farm. I hope you enjoyed the tour and remember when you go, be careful where you step you might just step on a berry. :)

head on over to 5minutes for mom for some real Wordless Wednesdays, since I can't follow the rules. :)

Those ferns are great- Hope you got one-

Dawn said...

Strawberries are "in" around here, too, but I haven't had a chance to get out to any of the farms. Maybe next week!

BTW - we have the same "why is it called going out if neither of you can drive" discussion around our home, too! Ha! Let me know if you get that one figured out!

Blessings! Dawn
