There are several elderberry bushes along my walking trail. The bushes are heavily laden with flowers and some fruit clusters are forming. It appears that, I am the only person pickling the fruit. One year I got 20 pounds and there was at least another 30 pounds left. I make juice from the berries and sometimes a pie. It has been a wet June and it appears the elderberry thrives under these conditions.
