Yes, I’m still picking berries and we are enjoying our heaviest crop of blueberries ever!
It’s always been our policy to eat as many as we want fresh and then freeze the rest. In the past that’s meant we froze very few, lol, so we would use the frozen blueberries sparingly in pancakes or corn muffins. But last winter we had enough that I tried some thawed in my oatmeal. It was goooood! The memory has me looking forward to many servings of blueberry oatmeal this winter.
As you see, the black raspberry season is just about over, but the red ones are quickly picking up speed and the golden ones are off to a good start too.
We find it easier to just let the red and yellow raspberries grow in thickets instead of trying to confine them to tidy rows.
But there’s a price to be paid for our laziness. On a dewy morning the front of my pant legs get very wet.
And my shoes and socks, (or soaks, as I first typed) well, they’re Saturated!
I wear my socks out over the hem of my jeans like that in hope of keeping any adventurous deer ticks from getting in. It’s a glamorous look, don’t you think? lol. – By the way, those are not ticks on my socks, I shudder at the thought of that many ticks!, just harmless clinging weed seeds.
My Black-Eyed Susans are in bloom. Heavy rain toppled these,
but there are plenty more over by the veggie garden. . .
where I’m about to pick our first tomatoes of the season. Woo-Whooo!!
I can’t wait for the Big Boys to be ready! BLTs anyone?
