I hadn't picked strawberries since I was a little girl. I remember my mother taking my sisters and I to the strawberry field early in the morning before the heat of the day. We all would pick berries for about an hour and seeing who could find the biggest juiciest berries! Recently, I took my 3-year-old berry picking. He had a great time walking up and down the rows of strawberries, looking for just the berries. However, I think that his favorite part was when we got home and smashed the berries to make strawberry jam. I think that my favorite part was enjoying the strawberry shortcake after dinner that night. I look forward to picking blueberries later this summer and making some more jam with the little guy.
