One of my absolute favorite things about this time of year is all the fresh strawberries!!! This past Saturday several of us here at Polyface had the chance to go pick all the strawberries we wanted!
The day was perfect, the berries were ripe, and the pickers were ready! After finishing our morning chores we left the farm before 8:00 and headed to a “Pick your own” located about 45 minutes from the farm. Within an hour we had 11 gallons of strawberries ready to bring back home!
While some froze their berries whole and some decided to eat them fresh, I’ve decided to turn most of my berries into freezer jam…
We had good help and lots of fun and an overall great day!!!
