50 pounds of strawberries later...

We made 7- 1 pint containers, and 7- 1 1/2 pint containers of sugar free feezer jam and 9 quart sized bags of whole berries to put in the freezer to use later in recipes.
It was so nice out there when we went to pick them. Not too hot and a nice breeze.Fresh berries taste SO GOOD! Now we have enough jam and berries to last us for awhile. We'll give mom a bag of berries and a quart of jam. She will be happy to get them.
We didn't do too much today. We are on vacation so am just taking it day by day. We did pick up the bigger hose and fittings to make our small wallerfall flow nicer. Luckily our pump should be big enough. It is so nice to be able to get outside, we have been having so much rain lately. We needed some of it as we were awfully dry, but it can stop for alittle while now. That was our day. Hugs, Teresa


  1. I thought we were doing well with 3 ripe strawberries on our plants this weekend, can't remember last time we had home made jam.

  2. We won't get too many berries this year - again - if we don't get the fences done around my potager - last year I put the nets over the strawberries so that the birds wouldn't eat them. But hey, do you think that the bird nets keep the dogs away? :D They eat all the berries available, crazy dogs :)

  3. Oooh that is so making me crave strawberries...they look delicious.

  4. WOW! That's a lot of strawberries, yumm! Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog.
