Berry Happy, Berry Pickin'

June brought a little break in the haying season after some rain. Once the sun came out the hay still needed to dry and we used the time to go strawberry picking. We went to two different farms on Green Bluff and found a great harvest. Jayney got her fill while we were picking. I think we could have doubled our bounty if we could have got her to put the berries in the basket instead of her mouth. There was NO stopping her once she figured out there were berries on the plants. JJ snatched them right off and chomped them down, stem, leaves and all. The first few fruits we tried to stop her and have a lesson on what was ripe to pick and what was edible... but it was less than a teachable moment so we let her just go back to snacking green berries as she pleased.
