Eyeing the mud in front of the tractor…

Theo fell right into the mud and just kept staring at his hands not knowing what to do!

Daddy to the rescue!

I have vivid memories of going to pick strawberries as a kid on Long Island. Recently I saw that some friends had taken their kids to Froberg Farm, so I was dying to take Theo!

Froberg Farm is definitely busy on Saturdays, but we had planned for this and arrived early. There were plenty of rows filled with strawberries, so we just found our own row and started picking. Theo wasn’t very excited about being there and was more excited about throwing the strawberries or squishing them, but Todd and I had a blast and we found tons of great strawberries! I was worried it would be more time consuming looking through each plant to find ripe strawberries, but there are plenty and we filled two buckets in under 30 minutes!

Buckets were $1 each and for just under 10 pounds of strawberries, we paid around $22. We wore our rain boots full expecting it to be muddy, but fortunately it wasn’t muddy at all. Theo managed to fall into the only patch of mud while I was taking pictures of him by the tractor, fortunately it was on our way out!

I made crazy easy, pectin-free freezer jam and it was so delicious! Seriously, this recipe was way less complicated than the other recipes I had found and still tasted great. My toast this morning was excellent!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
