on the 4th of July we went strawberry picking.
it was hot.
really really hot.
it was fun.
we picked way too many berries (i could not remember how many i picked last year and all i knew is i wished i had picked more at that time) i made 11 jars of freezer jam, 4 large containers of smooshed and sugared berries for icecream topping and then painstakingly froze LOTS of berries whole on cookie sheets and transferred them to containers for smoothies (and then i forgot to close the freezer door and they thawed and then refroze into one large lump. super.) and i still had a whole flat left that i sold to a friend. (mental note: pick 2 large flats next year, not 3)
