I Was Drowning in Strawberries

We picked 47 pounds of strawberries on Sunday.

That’s a lot of strawberries. Especially when you only have one decent huller. The twins and I took turns hulling, but it was still a 2-day affair. In the end, which was today, I have 18 pints and one half pint of very intense strawberry jam and 10 jelly jars of amazing strawberry compote. Amanda and I had some of that over vanilla ice cream tonight. Wow.

And then, because I’m an idiot, I bought a bunch of blueberries while I was at Trader Joe’s buying goat milk for the babies. With that I got 6 jelly jars of Blueberry Lemon Marmalade.

And if you didn’t catch it above, Amanda’s got home from college today! Finally. At last, and very briefly, my whole family is together again.


  1. Yeah Amanda! Yeah strawberries! Yeah blueberries (like you have nothing else going on) !!!
