4th of July pictures
We went strawberry picking for the 4th of July for the first time. We headed out to Pine Tree Apple Orchard in White Bear Lake. The strawberries were smaller that the ones in the store and also sweeter. They didn't last as long in the fridge, so I ended up freezing some of them. Wyatt spent most of the time eating the berries we picked. Evelyn spent most of the time as the "Strawberry Police" yelling at her brother to stop eating. Strawberry picking is pretty slow going unless you hit some plants that were loaded. I don't think it's a family activity we'll do every year and it will be more "fun" for everyone when the kids get a little bigger. We do plan on going Raspberry picking soon.
