It's blueberry season! The neighbor's field is filled with these beautiful purple orbs. They are abundant and ripe. Harvesting a bucket full is a simple task. . .and another. . .then another.
Not only are they easy to harvest, but to "put up" as well. Each container prepared and placed in the freezer promises a winter day of deliciousness!
They speak of smoothies, cobblers, pies, and sauces galore. How many blueberries does one household need? Three trips to the blueberry field has yielded more than enough. But the harvest is so addicting.
The freezer is full enough. I suppose the next blueberry picking excursions will result in handfuls of fresh berries sprinkled on oatmeal for breakfast, or smoothies of blueberries mixed with frozen bananas, or blueberries served over warm biscuit shortcake, and a cobbler or a pie or two. Today I am thankful for blueberries so abundant and close to home.
