Strawberry Picking ~ Part 1

Two weeks ago, the Bayou Cajun Homeschoolers went on a field trip to Landry-Poche Farms for strawberry picking.  The cost was per gallon bucket that you bought for picking but you got to pick and eat as many strawberries while you were there free.

I broke this post into two different ones due to the number of pictures.   Plus, it helps when trying to catch up on my blogging.
