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!

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. 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.

  5. 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!
