Strawberry picking 2009

August 4, 2009

A few weeks ago, I picked amazingly delicious strawberries with my mom at Luney’s Berries in Cohasset, MN. As usual, Mr. Luneman himself was there to welcome us and to show us where to start picking.

There were only a few of us at 9 am on a Saturday morning, but 11:30 am when we left, the field was full of pickers.

Normally, if you are a good picker, your hands won’t be this red. It seems that when you eat some of the strawberries that weren’t fated for the bucket, your fingers get red. I’m sure Mr. Luneman knows this and can pick out the people who pick and eat at the same time.  I hope that’s figured in to his pricing plan. 🙂

Mom and I ended up with 3 buckets each.  Later that night, I made my first ever batch of strawberry jam.  The same jam that Raleigh happens to be enjoying on an English muffin as I type this post.
