Our strawberries grow in groups of two or three, and are very tiny. So I’ve been saving each one in a bag in the freezer, in the hopes that I can eventually make the smallest, but sweetest, batch of jam.
We made strawberry ice cream to celebrate the first day of summer. And the first day of summer rewarded us by raining again. So we enjoyed our ice cream cones inside on the couch watching a movie. At least it tasted like summertime.
Our goals are pretty simple: 1. Make this yum looking strawberry ice cream. Doesn’t it look the creamiest? Where can I get some pretty strawberries? 2. Pick up a couple more flowers at the garden store. The key here is that we need some blooming flowers. We have a lot of flowers in the growing stages, but we want some blooms to attract some more bees! Have a good one!
We added a strawberry patch to the garden! Isn’t it just the cutest little patch you ever did see.
We made the planter ourselves with our creative gardening skills. I really wanted a tiered circular planter, to add some visual interest to the garden. We had a hard time finding one that fit my landscape vision, so we made our own using some garden edging. Now its perfect.
I added some new wedding cards to the shop this month! I am partial to the strawberries. How cute would a wedding in a strawberry field be? Plus the smell, and all the jam possibilities!
