This time I also picked more semi-ripe as well as ripe, and they'll be all going into making jam. Some of the largest and ripest will be eaten for breakfast and snacks but the rest will be cooked.
Saving strawberries from storm
There is a large tropical storm on the way and it's already raining outside. It will rain all Friday and Saturday and so far meteorologists predict 3-4 inches of water. That much rain will effectively turn my strawberry patch into one muddy puddle full of molding berries. So the only thing I could do was to pick, pick and pick some more. I picked a large basket of them on Tuesday already and was really surprised by the size of my new variety - Cabot strawberries. They were much larger than my Tristar.
