Homesteading in Denver, chickens and bees and more

Although we live in an Urban setting with a very small yard, it is home to one large crab apple, 2 columnar apples, one dwarf pear one dwarf peach on dwarf tart cherry, several types of currents, both raspberries and blackberries and strawberries, and new this year, 2 types of elderberry and a garden huckleberry. It is also home to 2 grape vines.
I don't want to forget the volunteer Chokecherry that has come up between our the north side of out garage and the neighbors fence. I tried to dig it up for replanting but I couldn't. It's impossible to get to let alone dig out.
I am hopping to can at least twice as much jam as we did last year.
