We celebrated the first day of summer by going blueberry picking first thing this morning. DH and I picked these three pails in less than an hour and paid $15 which works out to a dollar a pound.
Did not know that I should leave these at room temperature for a day or two and they actually get sweeter. Why has no one ever told me before? Because these have not been sprayed, this year I'm not even going to wash them before freezing. After all, I ate plenty of them while I was picking and didn't worry about a bit of dust/ This field is far from the road and probably doesn't get much dust anyway.
Another little fact.... this year the summer solstice coincides with the full moon. This apparently is not common and hasn't happened since 1948.
Happy First Day of Summer. Thanks for visiting.
