On a whim yesterday morning I decided to check the elderberries. We have a small patch behind the barn and it was loaded!!!
I spent next half an hour - 45 minutes picking / climbing in and out of those bushes . . .
And the amount that I got from that little patch was AMAZING!!!
A whole 5gal bucket plus a smaller 6qrt bucket!!!!
When I finally got the berries off the fronds, and got them washed and clean, I had 3 quarts of berries! Add them to the peaches we have ripening on the trees and I've got at least 2 batches of jam to make! I'll be checking the patch again today for more ^.^
