I started picking strawberries a few days ago. It started with a few every other day, then a small punnet and today was just amazing. I could see that I’ll have a very good harvest so I didn’t pick any during the last few days. It was worth the wait.
This lot was just over four kilos. I took two boxes with me in the morning, they filled up quickly so I had to hunt around in the shed for more. I keep no end of things there and found a couple more boxes so I was able to pick all the red strawberries.
The plan was to make one batch of jam and I’m happy to say that we have got 15 jars of beautiful strawberry jam.
It couldn’t be any more fresh – from the field into the jar within a few hours.
