Today was strawberry day. Mom and I went to the farm to pick berries with the kids. We each got about 30 pounds of strawberries after a little over an hour of picking. Pooh helped quite a bit, but Little man did not want to be there at all. I must say that 30 pounds of strawberries is quite expensive and it kind of takes your breath away. It is very worth it though.
When we got home I got right to work. The kids helped for the first batch and then lost interest. After 4 batches, which is 20 pints of jam, I was finally finished. Bending in the fields and then making all the jam about killed my back. Luckily the neighbors were out in their quickset pool and we were able to relax in the water. It felt glorious!
