A Little Taste of Summer as we move into Fall – Strawberry Picking and Jam

Well, baby Robin is seven weeks old today and although he is pretty much the most agreeable baby I’ve ever met he has requested to not be put down ever. Not even for a minute.

This request is totally reasonable but not compatible with writing the blog post that is supposed to go with these photos.

So as I sit here holding this little guy, join me in taking a minute to think back to a warm day in June. I’ll reflect on how babies grow into berry picking beauties and hope that Ryan brings me some of that jam on toast.

 We went berry picking at Lakeshore Farms in Wellington, Ontario, just down the road from our farm, followed the same instructions for jam as last year and used these great labels from mud and twig.

    Happy Birthday to Robin! There are no toddlers in our empty nest but we’ve had similar moments with our cats.

    I received a gift of Cubits Organics seed yesterday that my missus ordered through Etsy. I just want you to know they arrived safely. I plan to plant the Watermelon Radish in my Gage Park Community Garden Mulberry Stick Hoop House.

    Many thanks for the heirlooms you grow and Cheers from Hamilton, Ontario!

    I wish strawberries never went out of season!! Man alive, I want to take a chomp out of your strawberry basket photos… thank goodness for jam.

    Thank you, Laura! My labels never looked better :)
