Friday morning we got up bright and early and went to my parents' house to pick strawberries! They have a strawberry patch and have generously let us come over and pick twice this year.
The two bowls of purple/black berries are mulberries. We picked some of those, along with some sour cherries, to make cherry mulberry pies.
After about 4 hours of picking, I was tired, hot, sweaty, and dirty!!
Yehoshua, Ruth, and I were ready to get into the car and head home, but we stopped for a quick picture. :)
Since I remembered to take my camera along, I took some pictures of my parents' garden. :)
The garlic patch. I love garlic!!
Dill. My mom uses this for her dill pickles. :)
A blossom in the midst of pea plants.
Left to right: Potatoes, onions, carrots, peas, horseradish. There are also a few kinds of lettuce at the far ends of some of these rows.
Potatoes (4 rows), onions, (small) cabbage plants, and red raspberries in the back ground. When they're full of weeds, these 100-foot rows can seem endless.
The strawberry patch is on the left; a row of asparagus (not up to seed) blurs some of the strawberries; straight down the middle is red raspberries.
On the other side of the strawberries grows tomatoes, peppers, corn, cucumbers, and squash.
Have any of you posted pictures of your gardens this year? Feel free to comment with a link to your post! :)
