And today all our hard work culminated in our very first strawberry. We were proud!
You see, months ago we'd planted some strawberries in our small patch of dirt. We watered them. Tended them. Weeded them. (Ok ok, I know you get the drill). And then one day I went to check on them and my MIL's dog had dug into the strawberry patch and covered every single plant with piles and piles of dirt.
Feeling totally despondent we abandoned them. Those poor strawberry plants that we'd loved dearly. Drat the dog.
Today was momentous. We sat on the back step and we savoured that first strawberry. Well. One of us did. For a brief, very brief moment.
We dream big here. Jam production is go! Go jam production go!
