Strawberry Picking at Froberg’s Farm 2015

Man, we really did  push all of our spring activities onto the backburner this year!

Like bluebonnets, we usually go strawberry picking in late March/early April.

This year though, with baseball and other activities…it just wasn’t going to happen!  strawberry sun

Thankfully though, we made our way over to our favorite Strawberry Picking field this past Friday. Froberg’s Farm  is a wonderful pick your own strawberry farm and grocery store! They sell many homegrown items other than strawberries, but they are most well known for their wonderful strawberries! strawberry picking houston

My daughter is a complete strawberry monster. She could eat a bucket of strawberries all by herself. Like a BIG bucket.

Just look at that concentration!

My son on the other hand doesn’t have much use for strawberries (or fruit…or vegetables…or food besides pizza and cheeseburgers in general…), but he enjoys picking strawberries as well (although not quite as much as his little sister!). froberg farm noah

This  year, not only did we get to Froberg’s later in the season…we also went on a Sunday. I highly recommend going on a Saturday since there are less pickers throughout the week and MANY pickers on Saturdays! So by Sunday, you are really having to hunt!

Thankfully though, we filled our buckets and came home with some tasty strawberry goodness!

Next year, we’ll definitely go a bit earlier!

I also picked up some yummy strawberry preserves…so I’ll be making this stuffed french toast soon!
