First bounty

The first bounty of the season!

Two half-pint jars of raspberry jam, a giant zucchini, a yellow squash, and the (first of many) pickling cucumber.

Our neighbors have a lot of raspberries that border our mutual properties, and they've been kind enough to let us pick some to make some jam. Of course, we share what we pick. I haven't used pectic in my jams, so this is straight 1:1 raspberry to sugar jam.

My husband has given up eating the berries straight and now just demands more jam and fresh bread. 

We've got a lot more to come... still no tomatoes, but they're out there, waiting to ripen.
