    Just hanging out on the forum and thought I would share a few pictures of our small mini farm and bee yards.


    A few Strawberries. Earmarked for Jam.

    Great looking place, but I had to grit my teeth when I saw the strawberries-I just finished hulling and slicing a peck basket full of those things. Now I'm lucky I can type. :lol:

    I hear ya. I put 10 gallons in the freezer.

    How do you slice them. I have a slicer that is used to slice boiled eggs. Works great and fast. All slices are the same thickness.

    I just use a good sharp paring knife. I hull them, then slice as necessary. Small ones don't get sliced.

    Yankee11 - I like that idea, egg slicer - going to try that. I have a few strawberries here, but my main crops are pear, apple and plum - on a hobby type farm, these get out of control in a hurry, so I'm always looking for ideas on how to preserve and use them (particularly pears - mostly they get made in to chutney and are a staple in the ploughman's lunches here)

    You set my mouth watering over the berries and veggies and made my hand "itch" to pet those beatuiful goats. Thanks for sharing, Yankee.
