I'd like 2 cups of the jelly and 1 package of the puree, please. Thank you.

Oh? You're not taking orders?

Debbie said...

Can I send you my address and some money for postage? Seriously. I'm not kidding. I want some.

Wow! That is something that I have never tackled. We pick our strawberries and then just eat 'em. We can finish off two buckets in a week - easy! This year, I decided to freeze some so that we could make smoothies with them when strawberries are $5 a pound. But...are you taking orders? :-)

Kris, What meter are you talking about?

Lula and Debbie, No, sorry. Not taking orders. Beleive it or not, that should be just enough to get us to the next strawberry season.

Kat, You should make some. I had my eldest girl do all the measuring and mixing and we popped a loaf of bread into the bread machine. You can see it in the foreground of the picture.

Mer, These were not super sweet so we didn't eat too many. I want to go back when the Hoods are in. Maybe next week. Our berry season is late this year. We'll eat a lot more when we go back.

Viagra is the medicine that is recommended by doctors worldwide for erectile dysfunction. It is the chemical composition of both forms of this drug and helps to cause erection on stimulation of the penis by inhibiting the enzyme phosphodiesterase type 5 which causes smooth muscle relaxation and a better erection.

Propecia grows hair in about 50% of men after one year and around 66% of men after two years. Overall, around 85% of men do not lose any more hair while using Propecia.
