Herbs & Berries

I've been busy doing up strawberries. My patch was producing about 2 qt of berries each day since the 8th. Today the yield is down a little and the berries are smaller. At the same time some herbs needed trimming back and there's no point wasting the trimmings.

In the kitchen this week:
- strawberry jam
- strawberry rhubarb jam
- dried herbs: lemon balm, sage, golden oregano
- frozen herbs: chives

Father's Day Menu: grilled steaks, salad, grilled potatoes, green beans, fresh strawberries.
