Blueberry pickin, that is. After two days of hot, humid weather, today was much cooler and a lot less humid. The blueberry fields opened on Monday, which makes this the earliest I have ever picked blueberries. Hopefully I will be able to go again before we go to camp.
The bushes were full and the pickin' was easy. I fashioned a carrier for my bucket by using a dog leash, slinging it over one shoulder and fastening it under the bucket handle. Two hand pickin' made filling my bucket a lot easier.
In less than an hour I picked over 4 pounds of blueberries, to the tune of $10.50.
I actually put a jelly roll pan of them in the freezer already, knowing we wouldn't eat them all before they started to go bad. I usually wait too long before freezing them and end up throwing too many away. This way they were frozen within a couple of hours of being picked and there are still plenty to eat.
Blueberries have to be one of the easiest fruits to freeze! AND, tomorrow I will have fresh berries on my cereal. (A cup of blueberries only has 84 calories...yay.)
Thanks for stopping by...
