The autumn olive berries are starting to turn red. It'll be a bumper crop year and the birds are already stripping some of the trees, which I totally don't get because those things are seriously puckery. I wait until they turn red and start getting soft before I harvest.
I'm trying to decide what to make with them this year. More jam for sure, but maybe a mixed jam, too? Elaeagnus strawberry? 1 part elaeagnus to 3 parts strawberry.... or peach? Or blueberry? Or elderberry? Hmmmmm.
