Spring Fruit

It has been a busy week so far. Last Friday, Jane brought over about 10 lbs of pie cherries and 10 lb of eating cherries, so I spend Friday evening pitting and freezing cherries. Made a delicious low sugar cherry jam on Saturday. Two bags in the freezer for pies. Early Saturday morning as I was checking the garden I noticed that the blackcurrents were ready to pick. Didn't have time to pick them on Saturday or Sunday (visiting the grandchildren), so I did that Monday evening. Now they are ready for jam - hope I have the energy to do that one night before I leave for Vermont.
And of couse, the black raspberries are coming in like crazy too. I am mostly eating them :)
