if you want the best jam...

last week, i spent my friday off (have i mentioned that i love having friday's off??) with friends picking berries.

it is no small feat getting a good collection of these little guys and i have a new appreciation of the sometimes high prices for the wee little baskets at the store...debby snapped this beauty of me in recommended picking attire. apparently if you attach the milk jugs to your belt, you can pick with 2 hands. i'm thinking they get some serious berry pickers out here! the camera was a completely optional accessory chosen merely because of my good fashion sense...

peach, peach-raspberry, raspberry-peach, raspberry, raspberry- blackberry, blackberry

and a mess of a kitchen. because you know, if you want the best jam, you got to make your own.

Wow, that is quite a smattering of different jams. I'm so impressed. And my favorite part...the link to Michelle Shocked's Strawberry Jam. Good jam, good music. Did I mention I love you? :)
