This Summer's Fruits

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. 
Then big fat ripe juicy New Jersey peaches.

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.
