Strawberry fields forever...

K and I spent our 12 year anniversary (yes 12 years!) picking strawberries!

Here's our bounty, all for 12 bucks!

and the berries became this for some lucky recipients! It was my first time making jam and I was worried that I put to much sugar but it came out pretty good...especially on sourdough!

Oh and anybody who knows my neighborhood wouldn't expect to see this in the lawn
I didn't know what a wuss I am until I met this California King Snake. Thankfully, it's a good guy and Animal Control said to let him go and he will devour rats, mice and even a rattle snake (let's hope we won't find one of those)! After contemplating on where to set him free I found that he had vanished from his cooler enclosure! eek! I hope he slithered into a deep dark hole and won't visit me indoors!

The hot weather made my garden burst with an early harvest of veggies + herbs

“Chandler: If I'm gonna be an old, lonely man, I'm gonna need a thing, you know, a hook, like that guy on the subway who eats his own face. So I figure I'll be Crazy Man with a Snake, y'know. Crazy Snake Man. And I'll get more snakes, call them my babies, kids will walk past my place, they will run. "Run away from Crazy Snake Man, " they'll shout!”
