Yes, the date on this post is correct. It is still June and I'm already worried about Christmas. Okay, maybe not worried, but definitely taking it into account.
processing an entire flat of strawberries for freezing and we'll be picking up more berries from the market today.
Not only do we need berries for our own personal use for Christmas, but homemade jams seem to be much appreciated gifts, whether it be to un-homesteady family, friends, or just people in our lives we want to show our appreciation to, like coaches, dance instructors, or even the mail lady, so I'm trying to get far more made than we need so I have lots to spare.
I know I'm not super weird for having holiday concerns already, or maybe it just runs in my family, since my mom has been touting her Thanksgiving Challenge since January! Anyone else thinking about the holidays in terms of what they need to do now? What's on your to-do list for this summer to be ready for this holiday season?
