I think it's a tie. We left with a bunch of berries, but my arms and legs show the battle wounds.
I tried my first batch of blackberry jam today, but it didn't make much, so Emma and I headed out this evening in search of some good bushes. We found the jackpot at the church across the street, and hope they don't mind we picked their wild blackberries. I don't feel too guilty since blackberries are like weeds here.
The first batch turned out yummy, but I only got three jars, so with what we picked tonight, I should be able to get another 8-9 jars of jam made tomorrow. I'm feeling very domestic-goddess like today. Picking berries, and then preserving them. Very fun...and it feels good. Emma and I enjoyed a yummy snack of bread with fresh jam before bed. A nice way to spend the day.
