• In Belgium there's a museum entirely dedicated to strawberries

Last Tuesday Keith and I went out to Murphy's Farm in Binbrook to pick strawberries.  One of the items on my list (the summer version) was to pick strawberries.  (And raspberries, cherries, gooseberries, blueberries, pears, etc.  Haha.  I looked up a bunch of local farms where you can pick all of those, so I'm excited to do lots of picking this summer/fall!)  The day we went was suuuuuuuuuuuper hot... so we didn't fill the basket, but managed to get quite a bit!  (We didn't stay long because we wanted to come home and jump in the pool, haha.)  We made some strawberry daiquiris with some of the berries, and I made the strawberry & cream scones that I found on Eryn's blog that she found over on Smitten Kitchen.  They're delicious.  Like, so good that another batch has already been made.  I highly suggest making them if you've got some strawberries.  I'm not really a fan of biscuits (I always find them too dry.) but these are delicious.  It really does taste like strawberry shortcake all in one piece of cake.  Or biscuit.  Whatever.  They're good.  When I go raspberry picking, my friend Bri suggested making some raspberry & white chocolate scones so I'm totally going to try that.  Oh man. 

Have you ever gone strawberry picking?  (Or picking for any other type of fruit?)

  7. Oh I love this, a couple years ago me and the hub lived in upstate NY and we would go blueberry picking a lot. I don't think CO has that much berry picking, but these photos make me miss it so I may have to look into it. Beautiful photos here Holly!

    I saw you commented on Carly's post that included my crochet dress. So excited to see your clothing designs! Now that I have started I can't seem to stop! I have so many dress and top designs waiting to be made. Look forward to seeing yours!

    besitos,
