Today the kids and I went strawberry picking at Pantall Fruit and Vegetable Farm in Columbia, Tennessee. We picked 7 pounds of beautiful, ripe, red berries. Well, maybe more if you count the berries we ate! They do not spray the berries at this farm and they only use organic material for fertilizing. I love that the kids can pick these healthy berries themselves and learn about where our food comes from.
This afternoon I made my first ever batch of strawberry freezer jam! It is setting now and will be ready to eat tomorrow afternoon. I hope it turns out OK. If not, the jars look really pretty!
