Over the Garden Fence | Elderberry clusters popular for wines, pies, jellies

At the Penn State horticulture research farm, we have a large elderberry shrub that I have been observing through the years growing at one corner of a barn. Each year it produces many clusters of dark black berries which either the birds enjoy or they just fell off onto the ground. One of these years I am going to harvest them before the birds and make some elderberry wine or elderberry jam.
