The crew and I picked strawberries today. The ripe berries were few and far between. I feel it in my back tonight. Then we discovered all the best berries were in the area beside the mud puddle. Thankfully, Ally wore her boots.
Home again, we washed and sorted and cut. This afternoon we made one batch of strawberry freezer jam. I carried a bowl of berries over to share with an elderly neighbor. This evening we are having shortcake. We're calling it an End of the Math Book Party, because Ally finished Algebra I today. Or we could call it a First Sign of Summer Party. They are both appropriate.
