Yesterday was my first day off in about a month, so what do we decide to do? We drove out to Driediger Farms in Langley to pick strawberries.
We picked enough to fill four of those buckets. Fifteen pounds. It was crazy. But they are the freshest, sweetest strawberries. So delicious.
We spent the afternoon making a strawberry rhubarb pie and trying to make jam. Unfortunately, I tried to cut down on the sugar because the strawberries were so sweet already, but we ended up with 12 jars of strawberries preserves (ie because the jam never set).
Fun day nonetheless.
