I Did something that I have never done before... I went Blueberry Picking!! I always thought picking blueberries would be boring and take FOREVER.......... so I always decided against it.. well.. I'm glad I didn't this year. I packed up the kids and jumped into the car and headed over to VT to pick blueberries where we normally pick apples. This was the last little mini trip I got to take with my Fresh Air Son..
He Did NOT want to go home.. but that's always him at the end of his visit..He loves to be able to just open the door and walk outside.. and sit.. where it's peaceful and quiet.. He doesn't get that at home.
Here's the group picking for me.. I'm not sure how many pounds we ended up with.. but I know probably a pound was eaten just on the ride home!
These were so big and sweet! and most of them just fell right off!! YUM!
We filled 6 of these.. and I froze about 3lbs worth.. the rest.. I made into blueberry pie filling! I made 6 jars.. and used two already to make a pie... The rest I hope to use during thanksgiving or Christmas...while the frozen blueberries will probably find their way into muffins, pancakes, coffecakes, and waffles!!
I took this picture upside down so you could see the color and berries inside!! mmm...
I haven't shared for a few weeks.. but here are a couple books I read this week...
