You have to see to believe

Sometimes you have to see things for yourself to believe they are true. It is hard to imagine how many strawberries I have on my plants right now that are almost ripe enough to pick. Well its hard for me to believe but some of you may have seen plants with this many. I picked a gallon of ripe ones last evening and will pick again tomorrow evening.

See all those berries. I am a happy camper to say the least. I already have over 2 gallon of berries in the freezer and I am sure there will be more very soon. I do plan to dry some, make some strawberry jam and some syrup for pancakes. I am thinking the syrup would be pretty dang good over ice cream too. Maybe I will get my fill of berries this year. Oh yeah I do have some stray onions growing in the bed too. This is actually  where I had some walking onions planted near by last season and they did walk a bit.
We had a dentist appointment today  out of town and made our usual trip to Sam's club for a few things. I am out of chicken so we had to buy  some till I have some birds ready for butcher. I got a case of sticker shock as usual too. We did buy some burger too as we don't have out beef yet.
Not much else happening on the farm today, so till next time, blessings from the McGuire homestead.

Wow! What kind of strawberries are those? Grabbing my keys. I'll be there in about 10 hours!

Ooh I love your berry patch! Had one that was super productive way back when I lived in Wisconsin.. i feel your excitement. Where we currently live there are wild strawberry plants covering the ground in the shady back yard.. they are full of berries too--but not of much practical use. Still its fun to see them. :)
