Time to Pick Raspberries and Blueberries!

It was 67 degrees when we went out and started to pick at 7:30am.  The blueberries weren’t quite ripe , so Brandon only picked 4.5 lbs, I didn’t do much better with the raspberries and picked 3.25lbs.  Later I went out to get some grocery items and stopped at Apple Hill in Concord, NH and they had a box of nectarines that were seconds, so when I got home I took some of the raspberries and the nectarines and made  Nectarines in Raspberry syrup (Compote). I think the next batch I should thicken the syrup some more before adding the Nectarines.

I also made Cucumber pickles with lemon and tomorrow I plan to make Barbecue Relish, which is Zucchini based.
