Cool summer mornings are perfect for so many things and yesterday we used the one gifted to us to pick blueberries. And pick we did, 12lbs worth. Reece picked like a champ and I just tried to keep up.
The highlight of the morning was meeting one of the Harris Hawks. Pedro, born in the spring, is in training to protect the blueberry crop.
Back at home I spent some time making blueberry jam, freezing quite a few pounds and leaving just enough for us to enjoy as is.
And since blueberry season goes on for a few more weeks you can bet we will be heading back for more.

We are enjoying blueberries too - although they seem to get eaten as fast as they are picked. I'm trying to set aside a few so we can actually make something:-)ReplyDelete
Ah, yes that was the reason I got to jam making right away yesterday :)Delete
12 pounds of blueberries. That's my girl! Last year I pick 30 pounds of apples.ReplyDelete
This to me sounds like a perfect day.
It was pretty perfect xoDelete
They look divine- love blueberries. It's huckleberry season in Montucky.I bet you two had a great time- perfect summers day.ReplyDelete
We had a wonderful time, and Reece is asking to go back again :)Delete
Oh I want some! I hope I find some time to get and pick some in the mountains...ReplyDelete
Wish I could share with you :)Delete
Delicious! And how neat to meet that hawk. :)ReplyDelete
They are and yes, super cool in Reece's words :)Delete
oh my! beautiful! we picked blueberries too this year, and it was so awesome. they got frozen...I thought they would last at least through the fall. Sadly, the didn't last more than a month. Fresh blueberries are so creamy, aren't they?ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! Cream and oh so sweet :)Delete
Wish that we could have been there with you! I love all the berries that summer brings. Blueberries are my favorite berries.ReplyDelete
Oh how lovely that would have been. If you ever visit you have to come at this time of the year so we can pick together :)Delete
Wow, so many berries and a beautiful bird. I love watching your nature-based adventures unfold.ReplyDelete
Yes, so many, but they are all processed into jam now and some frozen for winter smoothies :)Delete
