One of the things on our summer list was going to a U-pick farm. Renee knew of a blueberry farm not far away, so we packed up the kids and headed of to pick a "few" blueberries for $1.50 a pound. If you pay attention to prices at the grocery store, you know that's pretty darn good!
We grabbed a few pails, learned how to identify a blueberry that was ready, and started picking...and eating...just a little.
These were no puny blueberries -
And these were no ordinary blueberry pickers -
I brought $10 and knew I would have change because, really, who could pick that many blueberries. But, as I checked their pails, I started to get a bit nervous. We called time-out on picking and weighed in. Eight pounds later and $2 extra from Renee, we returned home.
What do you do with that many blueberries?
Give some away.
Eat the rest!
In addition to a lot of blueberries, we also have squash-a-plenty on hand from Donald's summer garden.
With so much zucchini, I went looking for recipes and found this little gem. It makes enough for 12 muffins and a loaf. And it is DElicious! Fresh summer fruits and veggies are a beautiful thing!
