Luckily the strawberries are in season, so we made sure that we did not miss our chance this time. Everyone participated in the picking and eating, to include Chloe.

Below is a picture of what each one of us picked. I'm not going to say who did the best, but let you decide from the pictures. Do not be afraid to comment on who you think picked the most.

We did notice that after picking them for a while, all of our wrists and forearms broke out a little from the strawberry plant leaves constantly brushing against our skin. Next time, we're wearing long sleeves or long gloves.
We also discovered that Courtney is allergic to strawberries when she broke out in a rash after eating a good many of them. We will have to keep an eye on her from now on. Miss Courtney insists that she is only allergic to the tops and says she will not eat that part anymore. We wish that were the case, since she loves strawberries so much!
We want to go picking one more time before the season is over, which I think is next week or so, but even if we miss that, we finally made it to a pick-your-own farm. I'm sure there will be more of them in our future travels.
