Strawberry Picking We Go

The strawberries I currently grow are everbearing. So we have strawberries to eat for several months but not enough at one time to make jam. I am slowly working on planting more June bearing strawberry beds. For now it is strawberry picking we go.
So my daughter and I went to our local u-pick strawberry farm. They only charge $1.75 a pound. We were only there maybe 10 minutes and picked 11 pounds of strawberries.

 See the strawberries in the background. You can't see my daughters eyes but she is rolling them at me. After we got home I spent hours washing, cutting up and processes strawberries.

 I made 14 jars of jam, 7 low sugar and 7 with honey. ( I will post about that another day.)

 Another 8 cups of strawberries to freeze.
And last 3 trays of strawberries dehydrating. We will have strawberries to last us until next season. Although we are still snacking on the ones growing in our yard.
