Fruits of a long weekend
This is what happens when three women get up early on a Saturday and head for the strawberry fields. In only two hours, we picked nearly 80 pounds of fruit. It's probably a good thing we ran out of buckets, as the little Honda couldn't have held much more -- at least not unless one of us had decided to walk home.
I've spent part of the weekend dealing with my share, but made the most headway today -- ten jars of Christmas-gift jam and a few trays of chocolate-dipped strawbs.
Besides these, and the ones we've already eaten (plenty, trust me), there's still one more bucket left in the fridge. And look out, the raspberries can't be far behind!
