Blueberries


A couple of friends and I made our annual trip out to Bray's Blueberries last week. It was a perfect day for picking with overcast skies and mild temperatures. We had a great time visiting, as we dropped blueberries into our pails, so early in the morning.

It took me about 1 hour and 45 minutes to fill up this bucket which turned out to be 11 pounds of blueberries.

I think I ate at least a quart of blueberries when I got home. I also made 14 jars of jam, a festive berry tart for the 4th of July, and froze a gallon-sized Ziploc bag full of berries. We are still enjoying a few of the remaining fresh blueberries that are in the fridge. We'll see if all the jam and frozen berries will last us until next year's picking.

Mmmm! I'm envious! Berries! I'd probably enjoy the picking but I'm a bit lazy and mostly enjoy the eating!

Thank goodness for the Farmers Market! :)
