Summertime for me is always associated with picking berries.
Strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and maybe even some blackberries.
When I was younger, my family had strawberry and blueberry plants in our yard, and while we are currently waiting for some new plants to grow, we've had to make us of local U-Pick farms to get our fill.
Yesterday, my dad, sis and I went to Boxx Berry Farm and picked almost 30 lbs. of strawberries.
The weather was finally gorgeous (I swear, everywhere I've been the past two weeks has had rain) and we took full advantage.
To complete the experience we had fresh angel food cake with strawberries and whipping cream last night.
I am already counting down the days until raspberries are ready for picking. That's pretty much my favorite berry.
