Guess what today is, strawberry jam making day, I pick this much about every 3-4 days of ripe strawberries, in the pot, add sugar and pectin. Then can and enjoy the rest of the year. Mixed berry next, with raspberries, blackberries and boysenberries, the berry rows are coming up like weeds this year.

Well here I go with the strawberries, first photo setting up, on the back of the stove are artichokes for tonight and my on-going buttermilk, yum, another story, then in goes the sugar after bringing the strawberries to a roiling boil with lemon juice and pectin, again bring to roiling boil, then ready to put in jars, into the canner for 15 min, adjusted up 5 min for our altitude. The smell is over whelming:D And yes the jam jar in the back of the counter next to the honey jar will be full tomorrow.

:( My strawberries are just starting to turn red. Another week or 2 and I'll be in jam mode. :)

poking through the snow

Okay, well maybe the snow is melted now, but here in NW Montana my everbearing strawberry plants are just starting to grow for the year! Blossoms are only a dream for now, let alone berries. The wild ones are blossoming. They'll have small berries, but sweet and plentiful, and ripe around the end of June.

Thanks for the pictures of your strawberries. Very mouth-watering!
