I think most people, upon noting that they were all out of jam, would add it to their shopping list to pick up the next time they were at the grocery store. Even I completely wrote off strawberries this year but Ben just couldn’t.
And so he took the girls and picked his little fingers to the bone while I sat in the shade. He cleaned them too. They’re all prepped and ready to go for tomorrow. Jam making 101 for everyone in this family. It’ll be fam jam assembly line style but we’ll have jam for another year.
I’ve been thinking about our summer bucket list. I think I’ll put strawberry picking at the top and have something to cross off right away. That’s not cheating is it?
