Year of the strawberry!!


I swear this was the year of the berry.  Blueberries, raspberries, wild strawberries and strawberries went in over drive this year. I had a couple of weeks that I picked this bowl over flowing with berries. We ate strawberries galore. I made a lot of strawberry freezer jelly. I gave away strawberries to friends, neighbors and family. Hubby is busy trying to figure out a 101 ways to eat freezer jelly ( on pancakes, waffles, cheesecake, frozen like ice cream…).

I still have not picked any blue berries or raspberries. I had a neighbor who gave me some.
