The best time of the year!!!!

The famous song claims that Christmas is the "best time of the year", but NOT in my book!! What could possibly be better than a sunny warm day and a big bowl full of strawberries fresh from the garden patch??

Canning strawberry jam is my favorite way of locking up a little summer..... then in the dulls of winter we enjoy the jam and relish in the memories of a fine summer day!!! I just feel so much more ALIVE in the summer!!!!!!!


Have a BLESSED day, BE a BLESSING!

Things are SO slow up here ~ the strawberry farms are still closed. ::sigh:: I agree, the "most wonderful time of the year" is definitely NOT a time with any snow on the ground!!! And homemade strawberry jam is one of my favourite ways of celebrating the best time of year!

hmmm...maybe because your birthday falls on the first day of summer! I am just LOVING my strawberry freezer jam. I'm sure it will all be gone by next year-- but I'm savoring every bit!

I agree....strawberry time IS the best! I have had a few posts and recipe related to that lately, too! I love your photo!

I absolutely agree too! I love late spring and all of summer...for the berries...and the berries, and oh yeah, the berries!

I love lots of other stuff too...summer is the best time of the year!

Hey this reminds me...I need my momma to teach me how to whip up some freezer jam this summer!

The Engineer and I married in September of '99...we will celebrate 10 years soon!

I hope you are having a fantastic summer Heather!

We went strawberry picking yesterday and picked 43 pounds! I love this time of year too and have 2 batches of jam on the counter and a second batch of berries being dehydrated as I type this. Not to mention a dozen or so bags in the freezer. Yum!
