A promise of things to come.

Two years ago we planted eighteen strawberry plants.  Today we have about 57 strawberry plants.  Give or take a dozen.

Hello my lovelies.

In about three weeks the jam making extravaganza will commence.

There will be lots of jars, sweat, tears, and berry deliciousness.

There will also, no doubt, be a bit of profanity.  And yelling.  Plus, possible acts of violence committed against the utensils that choose to be difficult.  But no nudity.  Because hot strawberry jam spatter?  Hurts like the dickens.

Basically, it’s going to be a PG-13 Little House on the Prairie shindig.  

Anyone want to help?

    LOVE it! You’re too funny and I’m so jealous of your mad homemaking skillz.

  2. You are a very vivid writer.

    You have also made jam.

    Because jam making is very PG-13 and not much Michael Landon Little House on the Prairie.

      Jam making in this house is soooo PG-13 due to ‘language’ and ‘acts of violence’. Although, if a young, slightly sexy Michael Landon from his Bonanza days were to help make the jam….well, we might just have to add ‘mature content’ as well.

    hahahaha 🙂
    I would totally help you! I cannot believe you have that many strawberry plants. I almost bought one last Fri. but then decided I would try a watermelon plant first.
    yumm! I was just thinking about making jam! 🙂

  5. I wish you lived closer. I’d love to help! I need to go check on my strawberry plants. I wonder how they’re doing. We’ve had so much water I wonder if they’ve drowned.
