The strawberries are early this year, and word has it that it will be a short season.
We plan to take full advantage of it, though I'm seriously scaling back my jam making this year. Maybe I'll just make a small batch. With two boys afoot, freezing the non-eaten berries seems to be what's best for us at this stage in our lives.
When we brought home our brimming basket, it made me giggle to see just how many half-eaten berries were in there. Perhaps on our next trip to the farm, I'll have to keep a closer eye on that little Lachlan, who loves to eat berries and put things in baskets. The outing was perfect for him, I suppose!
