Oh What do you do in the Summertime?

Can berries, of course!
So far this year we have done cherries and strawberries.  Here are some pictures that Jared got of Rebecca processing cherries.

 This was the end product of all of that pitting.  This, three gallon bags of frozen cherries, a lot of stained fingernails, and some sore hands.
 We picked our own strawberries, even though the strawberry season was short this year.  I was so frantic about getting as many strawberries as possible that I didn't take any pictures of the kids picking strawberries/getting really dirty/running amok in the fields.  Here they are eating sandwiches on the way home, though.
 With the help of a friend, we ended up with about 25 lbs. of strawberries, so we made jam with half of them, and froze the other half.
Soon it will be time for blueberries, and then peaches, pears, and blackberries.
