At least the plants seems to be hanging in there and I feel that perhaps next year we will have another bumper crop like we did last year. I have several bags of frozen strawberries from last year so it's not like I "need" them.
I think these particular berries are destined for freezer jam. We really like freezer jam and I'm a big fan of putting strawberry jam in warm oatmeal with a little cinnamon sprinkled in. It's better than any of that packaged stuff. You can do this with peach/pear preserves or jam. I realize it takes maybe 5 minutes longer than zipping open a package of instant flavored oatmeal and adding some boiled water; but there are no preservatives or any excess junk going into your system, plus my berries and fruits have not been sprayed with any chemicals. Yes, the preserves do have sugar in them but I can control the amount that goes in. All in all, my flavored oats are a big plus in my book!
Well, I'm headed into the kitchen to see what I can scratch together for supper. See Ya!!
