I think everybody out there picking has the same idea. Until you realize that the bucket isn’t getting full as fast as you’d like unless you start picking in earnest. I always joke that if you got weighed before you went in and then again when you came out, they’d figure out how many berries you REALLY picked!

My grandparents canned pickles, tomatoes, beets, peaches, pears – you name it. If they could grow it, they canned it. It always tasted better than anything you can buy in the store. I’ll be happy if I can at least can a few pints of tomatoes. But the fruit – the berries and cherries, etc. – gets put in the freezer. Come those nippy days of fall and winter a couple of pies baking in the oven will take the chill out. And the aroma of fresh baked pies – well, my mouth is watering already!
