Blueberry - Part ll

One look at the background of the photo above and you will see why I love where I live. Just a short ten minute drive out of my little town and this is the scene. (Actually, this is the scene within my little town as well :)
We went blueberry picking a few days ago. The berries where so abundant that it was nearly an effortless task. Aside from the four pounds that I ate, Paul and I picked over 12 pounds in a short amount of time. We quit just as the heat was kicking in and the bugs were forming battalions.
Quote of the day by a little boy overheard at the farm: "Mommy, my tummy hurts from picking blueberries."

I froze 32 cups of berries. We will be picking again next week. Must have more berries to survive the Winter!

I know how it feels to run out of berries. I did that last year and I vowed that it would never happen again. Its my favorite winter snack! (I froze about 40 lbs so far...lol).

I love blueberries. I can just imagine how good freshly picked ones taste.

Wow! I'm used to picking wild blueberries, whose bushes are no more than about a foot tall... backbreaking effort! I envy you!
