This morning while Trav had meet with HR for work Justin and I went blueberry picking with Katie and Emily. And even though it started raining as we drove into the farm, and came down even harder as we walked out to the rows of blueberry shrubberies, we were not deterred. Soon the raincloud passed and the sun shone through. We had a great time laughing, finding the most perfect (17 pounds of) blueberries, and throwing the imperfect berries at each other. Justin acted as Chief Inspector, and only the prumpiest (plump & ripe) got to go in the pail. Katie was on a mission to load her freezer with as many berries as possible, and we were happy to help, especially since we are heading home tomorrow. It would have been fun to make some sweets with the tasty, fresh berries. Scones, pancakes, and muffins would be high on my list. Though eating them straight from the freezer, splashed with milk and sugar was a very acceptable treat after dinner tonight too!
Blueblerries! (blubes for short)
