Blueberries!

We went blueberry picking the other day. Toady we made 8 jars(1/2 pts) of jam and a blueberry pie is in the oven!

Still plenty of blueberries for grabbing a handful or two as you pass the fridge!

Huckleberries

Huckleberries are on here in the Northwest. DD1 has picked over 5 pounds! She loves hunting them and can spend the whole day picking. DD2, in another part of the state, picked a 20 oz in just a couple hours.

Our cool and rainy spring set up the harvest for wonderfully large and flavorful berries. Yum.

When I lived in Idaho, huckleberry patches were top secret! No one would tell where theirs were. The berries sold for top dollar too. Nothing quite like huckleberry pie topped with ice cream! Yummy!

I am so jealous of all of you who can just go berry picking. I don't have anything like that nearby, and my blackberry bush never produced any fruit. It's been growing for at least 4 years but it has yet to have any blossoms. Maybe I will have to threaten to pull it out in order for it to start fruiting. I have one strawberry plant that gives me one strawberry a day unless some creature gets to it before I do.
My DD#2 lives up in Washington state and goes blackberry picking in some secret location. She also has raspberries in her garden, and sends the kids to pick a few cups a day.

I went blueberry picking, too.......sort of. Went to the local farm stand and bought two 10# boxes. I made a pie, frozen 3 gallon bags ( love to just eat them frozen and in my smoothies), and a big container in the fridge for snacking.


Last year I went to this fabulous organic patch to pick, but they are not doing pick your own this year. Hopefully next year.

You could always do blueberry muffins or blue berry pancakes! I also love putting fresh blue berries in plain yogurt. Delicious!

My mom has wild blueberries throughout her property. I went there Friday and picked quite a few before the birds had their share.

They are smaller than highbush blueberries, but so yummy!

I made some lemon blueberry cupcakes with lemon cream cheese frosting.

I'm so jealous! Our local blueberry farm, where I've picked for years and years, closed this year due to the pandemic.

Hopefully they'll be back in business next season. In the meantime, I'm buying my blueberries from Walmart and the local grocer. Nothing like fresh blueberries on my cereal or oatmeal in the mornings!

DD2 just texted that she picked a POUND of huckleberries this morning! I am driving to her place tonight as her car is getting worked on and she needs a car for her work in home health.

Guess what we’re doing when she finishes work tomorrow!!
