Where I am – Picking Blueberries

I know that summer is in full swing when this sign appears on my road home.

Blueberries are ready!

Blueberries are ready!

A friend and I spent a sunny Saturday morning picking blueberries, chatting, and listening to the birds sing.

$3.00 a pound for organic blueberries is an excellent price. Our local grocery store has them on sale for $4.99 a package (they don’t tell you how big the package is).

Working hard.

We sat (stools were provided) and chatted and picked about 10 pounds each.

Ten pounds turned into jars of blueberry honey jam (using honey from my hive), blueberry pie filling, frozen blueberries for winter smoothies and baking, dehydrated berries, and blueberry & basil vinegar for salad dressing. It also turned into support for a local business, time spent with a good friend, and a few pennies pinched.

What is your favorite way to eat blueberries?
