Strawberry Silly// yeah, it's real




Strawberry time!!!! Fresh, warm strawberries..strawberry shortcake, strawberry jam, strawberry smoothies...ah, yes, did I say strawberries, or did I say STRAWBERRIES. ;) I always know its summer by the first fruit we pick - which is always strawberries. ♥ My sisters and I have this thing where we compete (oh my gosh..do we compete on EVERYTHING?! haha!) to see who can pick the most berries first. Then once we get home, we finish this competition by timing to see who can slice the tops off the quickest. Sadly, we all had colds when we went picking and Sarah had just gotten it..so she wasn't feeling up to berry picking. :(  We really missed her, but she was able to go a few days later to get some berries for jam that I was going to make!

 Annnnddd, guess who won this time? Yes, folks. Me! ;) Bree lost by 100 berries. We were that close!

Strawberry Silly. It's an illness. Have you ever experienced it? First, it starts out with this craving for strawberries. You just can't stop snatching one every so often. Then, your hands start turning pink..and slowly, red. And if you are making jam as well, you get sticky and hot. Before you know it, your mouth gets this weird sugary taste. It just won't go away! And suddenly, you look at the kitchen, and yourself, and realize that you are glad strawberry season only comes once a year. haha!

 Have you ever been struck by Strawberry Silly?
When was the last time you picked strawberries?
What are you looking forward to in July?

  1. I can't say I've set had strawberry silly, but then again I've never gone strawberry picking either. The town where I used to live had a Strawberry Festival and that was always fun!

  3. The only time I have every gone strawberry picking is whenever I was six years old. My grandma and mom took me and my brother to a patch in another state when we were visiting family. It was a blast and I'm sure I ate more than I picked:D Plus where I live strawberries don't grow:( Its to dry here and the soil is to rocky.
    I love the pictures you took! Strawberry picking looks so much fun<3

  4. Umm....We might have a few photos. I will have to look:) Oh that would be so fun, Julia!!! <3 The only berries we can grow up here are raspberries. Our neighbors tried blueberries and strawberries but they died:( Raspberries are the only berry that can survive because the roots grow close to the surface of the ground. :D
