Another start to our summer is strawberries....and of course yummy eating
We picked strawberries yesterday and even though it has not been a good strawberry season ( to cold - I guess strawberries like the warmth of summer just like the rest of us ) we were able to pick 5 flats full. Abby my granddaughter was the quickest and best picker...she picked 4 in the time some took to fill on half of theirs ( although I am sure the others had full bellies ).
Then during quiet time the older crew helped me to put them up or make yummy desserts. We made delicious freezer jam, 3 frozen strawberry pies, and this truffle. Next week we will pick sweet cherries and then on to blueberries....love the fruit of the season.
