Strawberry Fields

Hi all!  What a beautiful day we are having here!  As promised, I wanted to tell you about the fun we had this weekend, starting with Saturday at Jaemor Farms.  Through their facebook page, they invited all their fans, wait now we're "others,"  (now there's a blog post idea!) to come and pick strawberries.  This was the first year they planted them and they have about 5 acres.  They are NOT a pick your own strawberry field, but decided to let their fans in on the fun.

So, we wake up Saturday to some nasty looking skies and they NEVER cleared!!  We were a little worried about going to the farm, but we knew we had to try and were so happy we did.  No the weather wasn't glorious and my straightened hair went very curly, but the rain never came and it wasn't hot at all.  In fact, it was rather cool!  We had so much fun picking two flats of strawberries with the kids and then playing in the market and, of course, you can't go to Jaemor without having apple fritters and fried apple pies -- YUMMY! 

Jaemor has some of the most wonderful produce in the world, but nothing can beat the kind hearted people there!  They're always willing to lend a hand and tell you about any of their products, as well as the workings of the farm.  We just love going up there and are blessed to have them so close to home!  If you ever get a chance, you must go!

Well, enough of my writing!  I really wanted to show you our fun day.  So here you go.  TTFN!
