Hi All,

This post is going to be about one of my absolute favourite early-summer activities: Strawberry Picking!!!

I decided to make this a Wellness Wednesday post because I believe that it contributes greatly to my wellness! What could be more health promoting than picking fresh fruit, out in the sunshine with your mom. Good for the body and good for the soul! 

I’ve been strawberry picking for as long as I can remember. Mom would take my sister and I out to the patch and we would wander around, eating berries, getting them all over our face and clothes and maybe add a couple half eaten ones to the bucket.

I soon became a much more efficient picker and I can remember picking my weight in strawberries most summers growing up! We like to freeze them and have them in smoothies all year round.

Look at those delicious berries! We are truly blessed with beautiful berries here in southern Ontario 🙂 Mom and I managed to pick 22 quarts between us that morning!

And I’m sure that more than a whole quart went to each of our bellies before the end too!

Strawberries and rhubarb are just the start of my summer fruit picking- I’m looking forward to cherries, blueberries, raspberries, peaches, nectarines, pears, plums and really anything else I can get my hands on! Can you tell I have an obsession?

Do you like picking your own fruit?

Hope your having a wonderful Wednesday!
