I've been picking either currants or gooseberries every day for more than a week now, and cooking and straining the berries or canning the juice every evening. I'm getting a little tired of it but, of course, I'm the one who planted all the bushes and am so much into this project. My family is helping me some, but not as much as I would like.The raspberries aren't much this year but I have also picked and frozen blue berries.I just noticed that the blackberries are starting to ripen so pretty soon I will be on to them. The birds must be busy with some other berries, probably choke berries and are now leaving the blue berries alone. I would like to make some chokecherry juice but make not get to it.
