Making jam with foraged berries (& garden harvest photos)

In the last couple of weeks, the berries have been ripening. So, we have been picking dew berries, blackberries, raspberries, and huckleberries, which you may have seen in a recent post (here). After the 4th of July, the berries will be ready to harvest in bulk. 
Another fruit we have harvested is a June apple variety.

As we picked blackberries and dew berries the other day, we came across a pink variety. I have been searching a name for these berries. 

With the foraged berries, we are making jams. Last night I made my first jar of jam, and it was exquisite. 

You may have seen some recent photos of the big yellow squash harvest (here). The other day I picked yellow squash, greens, tomatoes, and peppers from the garden.
