It's that time of year again... the time to gorge ourselves on fresh strawberries while they are in season in Vermont! Once again, I didn't pick these 40 pounds, I bought them from this lovely farmstand. It just isn't worth my time for the (relatively) small difference in cost when I have 4 kids in tow (two of whom can help and two of whom will probably toddle/run out of the field!).
We froze about 20 pounds, canned up 17 jars of jam and ate the rest (shortcake for dinner, twice!) ;)
We may head back to pick a few more quarts before the season ends.
