With rain threatening to start any second last night we decided to head out to a local strawberry field to try and stock up before the season ends. We've have quite few overcast, rainy days here over the last week which tends to hurt the strawberry season. I'm so glad we decided to go when we did b/c there were tons of ripe red berries ready to be plucked! The rain held off and we enjoyed the evening as a family picking berries and filling our buckets. I took my camera along (of course) to get a few photos. I especially love this first one b/c that white house you see in the background was the house my family and I lived in for several years when we first moved to NC from CA in the early nineties. Back then however, these were not strawberry fields, they were tobacco fields. I remember watching the tobacco farmers working every morning while I waited for my school bus. How great would it have been to have been able to run out and pick strawberries in the afternoons! I'm happy that I now live back in this small town and I am just a short drive away. What great memories to make with my children!
