This time with our friends from out of town.
We picked enough blueberries for making a little jam, eating fresh of course, and freezing the rest. Between the picking we did this day (with lots of help!) and the blueberries we picked at a friend’s house, about 100 lbs picked, I’m hoping it will last us over the winter. We’ll see!
From the blueberry farm we went to pick Marionberries and raspberries.
We picked enough for fresh eating, making jam (for our friends to take home), smoothies, and Mark made a cobbler. A new recipe, and I need to ask him for the link because it was really good, almost like a cake, and you should try it.
Mark picked a few raspberries. Just enough to eat fresh. We missed the peak time this year. So none for the freezer for the winter. We’ll make do.
This is the summer smile I love to see around. Just perfect! Berries fresh to eat, picking, running, laughing, talking, hanging out together, telling stories or riddles, passing through the sprinkler (even at the farm!) and of course, lots of playing under the sun.
A stop at the farm’s store to pick other fresh produce, a sun hat (or two), and we are ready for our next stop.
Oh… that’s summer in my book!
