Sauvie Island Strawberries






Pictures from our weekend outing to Sauvie Island Farms.  We picked over twenty pounds of strawberries – we ate as many as we could fresh, baked a few cakes (subbing-in whole wheat for half the flour), then put enough in the freezer for two batches of jam and lots and lots of smoothies, pies, and other goodies.

There couldn’t be a better way to spend a Saturday morning – picking strawberries with friends, and anticipating all of the good things to make from the harvest.  I love these early summer weekends!

We’ll be back at Sauvie Island in July to pick raspberries and peaches.  We’d love to have you to join us!

  • don’t forget blueberries! i thought i didn’t like them…until last year when we picked them almost every week out on the island. so good. so much difference between the varieties! and no bending down or thorny canes.

  • so true! we have always had blueberry bushes in the past, and I hope we’ll get to put in 2 or three varieties here soon. I’m not a huge blueberry fan, but the girls sure are!

  • Thanks for stopping by my blog. Wow, 20 lbs. of strawberries-that’s impressive. I can’t wait to go strawberry picking. It’s just starting here this week but rain has kept me away. Maybe tomorrow!

  • Those strawberries are so pretty. I remember picking strawberries like that when I was little, eating more than I put in the buckets. ; ) I’d love to find a U-pick place around here.

  • oh, yes. picking summer fruit is just the best. and makes the best memories!
    looks like a fabulous weekend…..hope this one is going to be just as good!
