What I think is cool and I wanted to do it since I first saw the signs, is picking my own strawberries. Driving around one day I came upon the area where you pick your own strawberries and it's pretty cheap. They have a few strawberry pickings here but when I thought of all the insects that would be around, I went right to the farmer's market and picked up a tray. About 12 portions (green containers) on a tray for $9.00.

There is way too much mosquitoes around here for me.

I had the privilege of being swamped by rain for the entire planting season and it did not stop until too late to plant and get a harvest, so there was no garden this year.

Fortunately I still have canned and frozen left from the previous year and all the cans seem to be good.

I have the habit of dehydrating and then freezing cherry tomatoes and I still have a one gallon zip lock full of them. They taste as good as fresh in soups and stews.

This year, no matter what the weather or how late the planting, I must get a batch of tomato plants into the ground. Even if they are in buckets on the porch I will have them this year. Everything else I plant is optional. I can buy canned and frozen just as cheap for storage and preps, but I really enjoy fresh stuff out of the garden in the summer, especially the peas, beans and okra.
