Well I have been out and got about 16lb of Elderberrys and Blackberries today, but aside from one very good find it was hard work I fancy making some wine at 4lb of fruit to the gallon so may have one last bash tmorrow morning to allow for 5 gallons, but round here I think we have hit the end of season

I did get 5lb of Sloes in passingas they are super abundant, I am wondering a little if Elderberry, blackberry + Sloe wine would work?

I agree. I made soem elderberry, sloe and blackberry jam and that's delicious. Still got tons of elderberries here, many not ripe. Blackberries are pretty much gone though
