cherry picking this week!

Oh I LOVE it when the fruit finally gets ripe & you can go picking!! A few weeks ago we picked mulberries & made mulberry-rubarb jam. Last week we picked up strawberries (at a strawberry farm in Yelm) & I'm saving them for jam. THIS week it was cherries & blueberries! We got the best deal on U-pick cherries & have been picking them ourselves. I canned 24 quarts of Raniers, 18 quarts of Bings, & made a triple batch of jam from Bings. We also got an amazing deal on U-pick blueberries, and these we're freezing. If I can go out to pick more I might make blueberry syrup or jam too. So here are some pictures of us cherry-picking together. The trees were plentiful & We had lots of fun!
