|I spent five days picking fruit this summer. Strawberries first.
|Then raspberries. Click to enlarge.
|Here's the pretty raspberry patch.
|Then blueberries on a very hot day in Hammonton, NJ. Hammonton is the blueberry capital of the world!
|We picked a lot of them.
|The trees were laden with fruit.
|I made my signature peach upside down cake.
|When the weather cooled in September it was time to pick Italian prune plums. Look at this beautiful orchard, beautiful day.
|The plum trees also were covered with easy-to-reach fruit.
| Tasty, sweet, and juicy.
|Picked a whole lot of them, too.
|So here is my rainbow of fruit jams. Left to right: strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, peach, plum. Each of them like a little jar of summer. A very pleasant summer's work is done.
