For the last week, we have been making blackberry jam almost every night. I try to pick a gallon of berries before coming in to the nursery every morning. My youngest daughter, Libby, also picks and has helped me every time so far. The blackberries seemed to come on even before the currants and gooseberries were over and we canned at least a hundred jars of gooseberry and currant juice. Our kitchen has seen alot of activity of late. I need to get nets over the elderberries before birds eat those and it won't be long till the Dolgo crabapples are ready- after that grapes and apple cider.
