Strawberries are in season... and we'll be able to get nice big juicy strawberries for less than $2 per 250g punnet. Next project ~ would be homemade strawberry jam....yum.... but then I have to make a trip to the nearby strawberry field to look for 'seconds' strawberry tray, lucky if I could get 2 trays for the price of 1!!
