Went on a special outing this morning with Shauna and Esperanza to pick blueberries. $5 for a gallon seemed like a steal I couldn't pass up. However, an hour and a half of picking in the hot sun gave new insight into why I generally pay $3 for a handful of blueberries at the store.

It was kind of tedious, but definitely satisfying. Now I have tons and tons of blueberries!

I can't wait to figure out what to do with them. I'm thinking I'll freeze a bunch for smoothies and pancakes and stuff, and maybe try and can some?

I've been dreaming of making a blueberry/lemon pie, but I don't really know if such a thing exists. We'll see. Any other ideas? Please share.

  2. Mmmmm BlueberrYs!!! (sp???) Ok, but Im just a little unsure about a few details here... you subtly hint that maybe you picked a gallon by mentioning the price, but then go on to say that you have tons, indicating at least 2000 lbs. worth, and then if you assume that "tons and tons" means at least 2000 lbs. x2 we are up to 4000 lbs. I don't know how many lbs. 1 gallon of blueberries weighs but Im sure it is more than $5 worth. Anyhow I really love blueberry pancakes.

  3. Pshhhh...geez louise! Let's just say I've got a lot. If you're gonna make me commit to an exact weight, I'd have to say I've got closer to 1/1,0000,000 of a ton.


Don't be shy! I want to hear from you!
