In June, my niece, Lauren, and her two beautiful babies came to visit. It was so great to get to spend two whole weeks with them. I got to cuddle and kiss babies and reconnect with Lauren. Her visit coincided with strawberry season, so one morning we packed up the crew and went strawberry picking. I always look forward to this, but this year I was a bit disappointed. The strawberries weren't that great. I could have gotten better ones at Costco for less money--without being out in the hot field. But then we wouldn't have these great memories. Plus I like to support the local farmer.
This year I only made freezer jam. My family prefers it over the canned- at least with strawberry.
I had a helper this year. He came to the show a bit late, but he helped me fill jars.
Our freezer is now stocked with strawberry jam. Next up- Raspberry!
