many things needing attention
- berry fields,
- not to mention family events – an old Island summer tradition – everyone “comes home” even if PEI was “home” only to their great grandparents.
Summer chores go on, even in the midst of the social whirlwind.
8am this morning found Roger and me in the berry fields
it was a perfect morning for strawberry picking ~ the sun was shining, but not too hot,
and there was a lovely fresh breeze off the bay below the fields.
We were a little nervous that we might miss the berries while we were off to Nfld
but there were plenty left.
Beautiful ripe berries
46 pounds in an hour’s picking.
and this afternoon?
Crush, boil and bottle.
Preserving sweet summer in a jar.
