Strawberry season lasts a glorious ten days or so in our Botetourt County, Virginia garden, and we are coming to the end of it. Elaine has made strawberry jam (see picture below) as well as strawberry pie and we have enjoyed these red berries with our oatmeal and yogurt. As good as the strawberry pie can be, I have to say that the jam is my favorite. We will save these jars for the winter when we can enjoy this spring harvest once again.
It's not only the strawberry plants that are producing right now, so are the chives, onions, and spinach. Few meals are as good as a venison burger with onions and spinach, chives on a baked potato, plus any sort of vegetable dish and strawberries in some form of dessert.
