Strawberry Picking!

In Maine, the strawberry season starts later than in Georgia and is much shorter.  Ashley, Kaleigh and I were planning to pick a lot of berries this year to use for jams and the season nearly got away from us!

We got in on the last day that the berry farm was open!  We picked a ton of fresh berries!  A huge flat.  It was nice to be able to pick berries without being covered in sweat from the Georgia heat.

Due to the berries being at the end of the season, we had to act quickly to can them.  They were going to go bad if we did not act fast!

Kaleigh and I got right on it.  We canned 12 jars of strawberry jam (including 2 large jars) and we also did 4 jars of strawberry cherry jam!  They are so good that I doubt they will last us the entire year but we will see what we can do!
