    Welcome back! Glad you had fun at the strawberry place.
    Your Mom showed you guys picking your own strawberries.
    A couple of years ago Mrs. Jim and I were visiting in Vermont (USA). At an apple farm there was a sign saying 'pick your own apples.'
    When we got in there it was pick your own apples out of a large wooden crate in the yard.

    Hi LittleJen:-) Thanks so much for dropping by my blog and leaving a comment...I've been meaning to come to yours to see your strawberry recipes which your mom mentioned!! They do sound soooo delicious and I've copied them. I love going to pick my own strawberries at the farm near here in the summer time. I make jam every year, enough to last for a year:-)Take care and hope to see you again!! Hugs xox

    Thanks for your visit to my blog. It is finally starting to warm up here in NW Washington State but that means a warm, wet front came in to collide with the cold one already here, so we are getting more SNOW. There is about an inch of it now and we may get up to 3" total before it warms up enough to change to rain. Your strawberries and nice warm weather sure sound good.
