Hanging Berry Bushes and Strawberry Jam

The strawberries have been coming on strong. At least something is growing well in all this infernal gloom...

Not a flat of berries, but enough for a batch of jam!

The cook always gets plenty of testing to ensure quality.

Careful, its HOT!

Good thing Mom also baked fresh rolls... yumm!

We also strung up heavy wire out in the raspberries and tayberry bushes.

Simply drilled some holes in the posts, and stretched the wire.

It already is helping keep the berries up.

We also added tension wires to the ends - to keep the wires tight and the posts straight. All this rain has softened the posts in the ground.
