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.


  1. Ohhh!! We can't wait to pick strawberries! A very very favorite for the kids and me :)

  2. Yum! We picked today, too - at a friend of a friend's house in SW LR.

    And, honeysuckle is my favorite scent! Behind our house is a huge hill covered with it. JI has had so much fun the past few days "picking dessert" for us all. :)

  3. We LOVE strawberries here and eat them constantly! I grew some when I was in 4H, and there is definitely nothing like one that is fresh picked! Sounds so yummy!!
