Vermont Berries for Jam
A sunny day is an event to be cherished.
Here at the foot of Morrill Mountain in South Strafford, Vermont the month of May was cool and very wet. For the good, everything is lush green and slightly overgrown. Morrill Mountain Fruit Farm berry bushes are loaded with tender young leaves, blossoms and forming berries. Pollinators are working overtime. If the dandelions are a predictor, we'll have a bumper crop to harvest for our yummy small batch organic preserves.
For the not so good, the winds and rains may have knocked blossoms to the ground before the pollinators got to them. We can't tell yet, and it is completely beyond control. Driving rain and hail in June keeps us hopefully humble. Life on a berry farm in Vermont
