Today was the first big flush of putting food away. The cherries are beginning and the strawberries are at peak. We’ve got strawberries freezing on cookie sheets, cherries reserved for pie, cherry jam made, cherries drying in the dehydrator, and strawberries left over for eating fresh or waiting for an empty cookie sheet.
Emma’s helping out in the strawberry patch.
Grandma Jo helped out too!
Martin helped for a short time picking cherries.
