    This is a busy time of the year, I suppose that is the reason the time passes so quickly. We picked and canned about three gallons of blackberry juice Monday. We use a lot as we like a glass of juice with our breakfast each morning. We have a large crop this year, so I guess I will can a lot more. I also usually make several pints of blackberry jam and bake a jam cake to sell at the Cecilia Days auction. Which, by the way, is just around the corner Aug. 9 and 10.
