in the RAIN!! :D

Well, it was really a yucky drizzle and there were only a couple of people there. I picked 2 buckets (about 13 pounds) and only took me about 40 minutes.

I got a late start because of the rain, then decided to go anyway because tomorrow they are calling for thunderstorms, and Friday I have 2 tests. So I didn't get home until 4 pm and because the berries were wet, I had to get right on them! :( I just finished cleaning the kitchen at 9:30!!

I didn't get all done yet. I put the last of them on paper towels on cookie sheets so they won't mold on me before tomorrow. But I did make 4 pints and 11 jelly jars of strawberry rubarb jam and 3 pints and 3 jelly jars of strawberry jam! :yippee:

The best part is all of them sealed!! I love hearing that POP!! :D

YUM - E!

I was just saying to DH and the children today that we need to go get some strawberries. They all love strawberry jam.

Great work!

Kristin :)

Great idea Lori! Count me in.:D
Great job Dee! You'll remember being bent over, hard at work picking those berries in the rain when you open each jar. Worth all the work~ you betcha.
