Yesterday I went strawberry picking with some of my friends! I was fun! It really didn't take as long as I had anticipated and the heat didn't kill me either! The strawberries are all so deep red and super sweet! I ate so many strawberries while we were out there, I think I definitely got my moneys worth for going, and at 1.19 per lb its cheaper than going to the grocery store and the strawberries have a higher nutrient count because they have been picked more recently than their Chilean grocery store counter parts!

Since we now have an abundance of strawberries at our house I decided to try making freezer jam today! It was really simple, just follow the directions that come with your pectin. It made 5 jars, I think I might go out and buy some more jars tomorrow and make some more!
Here are some pictures @ the farm

Caidence and Danielle really enjoyed the eating part
Danielle especially, good thing for us she discovered how great the strawberries were toward the end. :)
She is so cute!
Here is Melissa and Caidence picking, Rosa is in the background. She was on a mission to get the best ones. Sam and Danielle are behind me so they got left out of the picture.
