It is blueberry season around here, and the picking is good! We visited our favourite blueberry orchard yesterday and picked our little hearts out with some friends, and the harris hawk who was on duty protecting the berries from the birds. Always a treat to see the hawk and meet his trainer.
We walked away with 12.5lbs of the delicious blue berries. Some of the berries have already made it to the freezer, and blueberry jam is in the plans for today, Whatever is left we will enjoy as is, by the handful.
The best thing about blueberries, the long picking season. We will be heading back next week for another session of picking, and then, a little more jam making.
