I had a grand time picking berries at Thierbachs. The property is well maintained, the variety of produce is impressive, and the picking season was good this year. I missed my chance at raspberries in June, so I guess I’ll just have to go back and pick more blackberries this summer. I’m really looking forward to the peaches too. I put all of the fruit (blackberries, blueberries, gooseberries, and sour cherries) in the freezer for now. I didn’t want to heat up the house too much in the summer. So, I’ll can the jam later this fall. Plus, I don’t trust the stove right now. It has been acting up a bit.
