The strawberry season finally hit the Inland Northwest, but about a month later then in past years. I don't know about you, but our growing season this year really sucks. I am now harvesting my spring vegetables (i.e. lettuce, beets, peas) in AUGUST! I am hoping the season drags out far enough to be able to pick some cucumbers, tomatoes, green beans and zucchini. I'll keep you updated.
Immediately after arriving home from Tennessee, I (all by myself) went up to one of our local farms and picked small but super sweet strawberries.

24 pints of strawberry jam!After passing out some jars to my children, family and friends, I think there should be enough left to last me through this next year.
