I've made several trips on my own to pick berries to put up whole in the freezer and to make jam.
I would share my jam-making experience of last week, but it was a bit of a flop. We now have a year's supply of jam, but it's more of a jam sauce...very tasty but a bit runny!
Despite the runny jam, the experience of spending a cool spring morning in the strawberry patch is well worth it.
A few weeks back, the boys and I went down the road to McAdams Farm to pick strawberries to simply enjoy them fresh.

Are strawberries in season where you live?
