Strawberry Picking

It has become an annual tradition every summer to go and pick strawberries. Thursday morning we cleared our schedule (skipped hockey camp) and headed to our favorite strawberry patch: The Pine Tree Orchard in White Bear Lake. {This is also the same spot we go to get apples every fall.}

It was going to be a very hot day and we wanted to beat some of the heat, so we left our house bright and early and stopped to pick up my Mom on the way to the orchard.

The Pine Tree Orchard has approximately 20 acres of strawberry fields.


We loaded the wagons for the short little trip to the fields.

And then the fun began. :)






We finished picking really pretty quickly and then loaded our berries onto the wagon for the ride back to the parking lot. We picked 5 boxes total- and Drew and I brought home about 23 pounds of beautiful berries.


It was a great morning, and we have been totally enjoying the reward from all our "work".
