Here's What Kept Me Busy....
Okay, so I am sure some of you are wondering if something happened to me since I've really not posted since Thurs. See that picture up there? I've been looking at LOTS of those!
Friday a friend from church offered me her extra berries if I wanted to come pick them. She and her daughter helped me and we got 3 dish pan fulls and then I still had to do them all. They were small and thanks to the rain many of them were a bit soft or had rotten spots so it took me the rest of the day to do them.
Then today my wonderful mother-in-law and 4 younger brother and sister-in-law's came and helped me do 75 qts. of berries. Remember, I told you that I do a lot of strawberries! We crushed them all and I put them in our freezer and I'm thinking that should easily last us a year and hopefully more.
I'm sure some of you are amazed that we eat that many strawberries. Well, I married a fruit lover and our Logan is his father's son in that regard. They both love strawberries on homemade yogurt, granola, and even cake. And then we eat some in smoothies or mixed with other frozen fruit too, so we do go through a lot of strawberries. However, I'm thinking that maybe we did more than what we'll actually need for this next year. Of course that remains to be seen though!
At any rate, I'm sorry for my absence. This week I just might not be online a lot since we have someone coming a couple of days to work on our kitchen (which is where our computer is) and then my mom and sister are coming for a day as well. So I'll try to keep you updated with the deals but, well, we'll see how that goes!
