berry picking

Whatcom County is one of the largest producers of berries in the country and every year I have intentions to pick berries until my hearts content. In three years of living here I haven’t done it yet, until this year! I hit up strawberry picking with one of my besties, Jessica, when she came to visit at the end of June and then earlier this week Isla and I hit up the raspberries.

Isla and I in the strawberry fields in late June.

Raspberry picking!

Our loot. We collected 3-1/2 lbs. total.

I brought those 3-1/2 lbs. of berries home and froze some for a little taste of summer in the middle of the winter.  I also used this recipe to make raspberry jam. I downloaded some labels from Jones Design Company to dress up the jars, aren’t they cute?

My mom’s going to be here next week, maybe we’ll hit up the blueberry harvest!
