he picked me up early one morning, and we drove to the stake farm. we picked and chatted a little and filled our boxes, then drove back home. it took a little more than an hour.
i've been bottling and drying and making jam. i'll be giving some to him, of course.
i sure do like my dad.
i know there are lots of jam recipes out there. i'm just going to write down a few little notes for myself...
