A Berry Good Day

April showers bring May flowers, what do May flowers bring? Strawberries in June!! We have had a rather moist Spring this year which made for excellent growth of our strawberry patch. Now the plants are loaded with ripening berries and the hot weather has arrived just in time.
Saturday was our first official "pickin" day and one search through all of the plants yielded 10 quarts of ripe berries. Most of these were quickly turned into jam, with a few being saved for scrumptious Shortcake!


  1. We just got our first fresh strawberries this weekend too. Yours look so delicious. Love the way the first jam of the season looks too.

  2. Oh,yummy! I always enjoy eating as much as just admiring the canned food :o)
