More preserves

Our plans to pick strawberries this weekend went somewhat awry given the endless rain. So we went Saturday down to the farmers' market on 104th Street. As you can see, it was rather quiet (could have done it as a drive-thru...).

We picked up some lovely carrots and potatoes from Riverbend Gardens as well as some chicken and eggs from Serban Free Range.

We also grabbed a bunch more cherries and spent Sunday morning making more preserves. Jessica helped more this time, filling the jars with the cooked down fruit.

If the rain stops, I'll be up this afternoon seeing if our gutter has again clogged with elm leaves. I'm keen to try some strawberry jam if the weather will cooperate!
