“How I spent Memorial Day.” No, not really; just an hour. But we enjoyed the berries all day.
We picked 22 pounds; most were eaten “just the way God made them.” It was too hot here to bake. I’ll freeze the remaining berries- so we can go back to Rowe’s Produce Farm and pick more!

When you pick berries with kids there are bound to be some that are bruised. Which is okay; it’s easier to decide which berries will go into the freezer.

I like to freeze the washed berries in a single layer on a baking pan. After an hour I transfer them to a plastic freezer bag. For longer storage, (I’d like some of these to keep until February) I’ll place the freezer bag full of berries into another container, or wrap in a double layer of freezer paper.
