We swam (with a leeeettle help from the pool heater), we started putting in this year’s spring garden plants, and we hit up a nearby farm to pick strawberries. 14 pounds of strawberries.

Spring in Texas: Froberg’s Strawberry Farm

How to Wash and Store Fresh Strawberries

A few weeks ago, we headed down to a local farm, Froberg’s, to pick strawberries for the second year in a row.

Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes

Strawberry season! Big, fat, juicy and dirt, dirt cheap. I intended to bring strawberry cupcakes to a get-together but then I walked passed big, fat, juicy lemons. Not for sale, but still big. Fat.
