The Salmonberries were not as abundant this year, as they have been. It seems that the effects of the non-existent summer, two years ago, when we barely reached 50 degrees and hardly saw the sun, is still showing. I miss seeing berries the size of walnuts, over taking the bushes. At least there were some berries, compared to the non-existent summer, where there were no berries, no flowers, and no sun.
Yesterday I took the day off, a much needed 3 day weekend. (The last tax deadline, October 15th, has past and I have survived...barely) Sunday I pulled out my three small bags of berries to de-thaw. I was able to get about 2 gallons of berries, a small amount for me.
Thru smashing and adding a small amount of water I was able to squeeze enough juice for two batches. Not a lot but at least some.
