Rain, rain go away . . .

It's been raining every day for the past week. My garden is so soggy. I'm worried that we're going to end up with rot. Hopefully some sun today.


Yes, sun! Went to Brown's Berry Patch today and picked 10 lbs of strawberries.
The cherries are ready too and people had heaping baskets full. They looked like rubies.
The strawberries patch was very soggy. Everyone who was out there picking today was a Strawberry Samaritan. We were literally saving the strawberries. Hopefully I will go back on Sunday to pick some more. We're going to make jam.

It was fun listening to everyone talking about the strawberries. They were planning to have them on pancakes and short cake and sugar and cream, or straight from the plant like the young brothers who said: "I swear to you, mom, we're not lying; we found the biggest, juiciest strawberries."

Mom: "Well, where are they?"

Boys: "O, we ate them!"

Evidence all down the front of their tee shirts. Big grins. My kind of kids.
