Sauvie Island

July 01, 2013  •  1 Comment

Berry season is in full swing in the Northwest.  Many of the local farms offer acres of land to wander and pick your own goods.  My wife and I wanted to do this last year but she managed to break her foot in a biking accident just before the season.  With her foot healed and a mission to try our hand at making homemade jam, it was time to hit the farm.

Living in North Portland means we're only minutes away from Sauvie Island.  This is small island that sits on the Willamette River sandwiched between Oregon and Washington.  It's full of family owned farms and is a great summer spot to do a variety of activities.  Since we're loyal patrons to the Kruger's satellite market, this was the farm of choice for our afternoon adventure.

A storm front surging from the coast provided some awesome clouds but the sun stayed out long enough for us to gather a few pounds of various goodies, including strawberries that were sweeter than candy!  

And of course we made sure not to  forget to say bye to the pigs and chickens on the way out.. Bok Bok!
