The Pickers Are Here!
Borrowed the above title from the classic Jimmy Stewart movie Shenadoah-Cliff, Lauren and I went to Scott, Arkansas this morning to pick strawberries-lots of fresh berries to be found in our area-but very few will let you pick them yourself. Cliff picked 5 lbs, Lauren 4 lbs. and I picked 3 lbs for a total of 12 pounds of strawberries. Plans are to just enjoy them plain, with angel food cake, chocolate covered, strawberry butter, with yogurt , in salads and strawberry jam. Also included a picture of Lauren picking honeysuckle- the fragrance was amazing!!! The temperature hit 93 today-predicted to be in the 70's on Saturday.
