We (FI and I) went to visit my mom for Mother's Day, and we went strawberry picking. We try to go every year. Every couple of years I make a huge batch of freezer jam, which (hopefully) lasts until the next time.
This year I wanted to can the jam so it would last longer. No one argues with that - they all like to eat it!
So Mom and R and I went and picked. It was maybe an hour, not more than 2. We came back with 5 containers and 25+ pounds of berries. They're really tart this year - not as sweet as normal. We're blaming that on the weather.
Here's a pick of the strawberries all sliced and ready to go - or at least three containers worth. The other two were saved for eating straight.
So, Happy Belated Mother's Day to all the moms out there!!!
What did you spend your weekend doing? Also getting sidetracked?
