farm to table eating

Last Friday found us heading out to Whitted Bowers Farm in Cedar Grove to pick a peck of organic strawberries. According to their website, the berries were at their peak and the plants would be loaded.  45 minutes and 23 lbs. (yes, you sadly read that correctly), I have to agree.  It was a good picking day.

OK, so the kids weren’t exactly doing a lot of picking…

So, 23 lbs. of strawberries became a topping for a birthday strawberry shortcake:

and 168 ounces of jam:

Strawberry ice cream:

Hopefully all of this strawberry bounty will tide us over until blueberry season begins.
