The plant city strawberries are in and beautiful.
If I get them by the quart they are $4.00 each, if I get them by the pint they are $2.50 but I got them by the flat and this is a flat it contains 12 pints full to overflowing as you can see. You don’t even see the pint boxes but they are there and this cost me $19 to put this into quart boxes it would cost $24 so it is well worth getting the flat for a while. As long as all the kids like lots of strawberries. As soon as some don’t get eaten fast enough I will go back to one quart.
This is a post I started back on the 24th of Jan and never remembered to finish so will just add my new events or non-events and post it. I am moving a little slower today in the kitchen and on the computer as yesterday I slipped while cutting my potatoes for shoestring fries and cut the very end of my ring finger. It didn’t hurt at first as it was a clean quick cut but when the bleeding started it hurt like the devil where the quick was exposed. I cut off the last flap of the nail as close as I could and got it bandaged so by today the ache is done and only bothers if I try to use that finger. I can still sew and knit so if I keep my hand out of the water I can go on as usual. Typeing is a little slower so I’ll just say Have a great day and get back to cooking dinner.
About Carol (Ouma) Petts
I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
