Nope...ain't no speed in those little things!! Most of these were good sized, very ripe, so almost falling off the stem. Hey, I spent several hours to get these done! Enough that I began wondering --- do you really need these? Isn't this enough? Do you need to pick this many again?!!!? Yeah, it's a lesson in patience! But I will pick again tomorrow. Still have some in freezer, some dried..from last yr. One more pint of juice canned. I don't make syrup, just juice it, add a splash of lemon and WB it. Big slug of juice is about 3 TBS. No need to waste my time and sugar.speedy picking technique?
Just so you know it took a while...
That's a Tupperware strainer. See how dark? Ripe!
Can't imagine this beautiful stand of elders being cut down. Makes me want to cry. But right next to his house....so nice to pick though! No ditches and weeds.
Probably so nice sized because of all of the rain I kept from @farmerjan ! Hey, Jan, want me to bring you juice to the Fall swap??
