blueberry season

It's that time of year again. We've nearly plowed through our 3 kilos of blueberries.

I didn't even make anything with them, so it looks like we'll have to pick more so I can make muffins at least.

I'm not sure how long the berries will be in season, because we've had odd weather. First, it was super hot and now it's chilly and rainy. I just don't want to be disappointed like last year when we went and they were packing up for the season. That was a disappointment I don't want to relive.

It's impressive how long the berries stay fresh when you pick them yourself. It really makes me see how long food really takes to ship.

I will love the day when I can grow my own - I need a garden.

We came home just in time for the Blueberry Harvest Festival in my hometown...I can never have too many fresh blueberries!

Yum, blueberries! Nothing really beats the experience of picking your own, and then enjoying them at home. My mother-in-law just was telling us about picking their own berries on their farm, it is a little different when you are growing and collecting for profit, but still, such a lovely memory. Maybe you need one of those little gardens with the little house on it :)
