Strawberry Pickin' Season

Last week, I went to Sauvie Island with my friend Jenny to pick strawberries! You can also pick other berries, such as raspberries pictured here:

Strawberry fields are a glorious sight.

So many berries, so little time... I believe I picked this one though.

I didn't realize before how labor-intensive strawberry picking is. My back was starting to hurt, so I called it good at four pints.

With all these strawberries, I couldn't not make strawberry shortcake. I used a buttermilk biscuit mix from Bob's Red Mill.

Ta-da! The biscuits are done.

The pièce de résistance:

Pug had some too.
