It's blueberry season --- little purple orbs of luxury! Rich in antioxidants, they are also poor on the pocketbook if you buy them at a place like Farmer's Market or the local grocery store. But these antioxidant-rich berries have such awesome food value, that it pays to take advantage of blueberry season to fill the freezer for winter's use. This week I was not only blessed with blueberries, but with a blueberry picker!
Cousin Levi is nine already and under the tutelage of his parents, is learning about earning money and keeping accounts. He asked his Auntie LaTeaDah if she would like him to pick her some blueberries, and I said YES! His prices are much lower than the Farmer's Market, and the berries delicious! A willing picker, he's happy to pick as many as I wish to order. If the task gets somewhat overwhelming at times, I suspect that his mom and dad lend a helping hand, 'cause that's just the kind of people they are.
Of course, others like the blueberry patch as well. Long lines require patience, but so far everyone who has wanted to has had a chance to pick. Levi's three trips to the berry patch have resulted in. . .
