Early Saturday morning I went raspberry picking with a couple friends at Lindley's farm in Ancaster. I hadn't been berry picking a really long time. It was a nice way to start the weekend, even if our 9am start didn't beat the heat.

We each picked two quarts. Thea had plans to make a pie with hers, and I was on a mission to make my first batch of jam ever. Even with my house at 86 degrees I still managed to turn on the stove later that day. It was not only my first home jamming, but my first at home canning too. It was a success and it was all a little easier and less intimidating than I had thought it would be.

Now I am looking for a local blueberry patch for next weekend.
