Berries and Beans

Today I finally got to go over the river to Thorneberry’s Organic Blueberry Farm to pick blueberries! At only $1.35 a pound, I couldn’t pass it up! I called a friend and we headed out to pick with our boys…

There were TONS of gorgeous big blueberries just waiting to get picked!

My youngest son took time from picking berries to take these lovely shots!

When it was all said and done we had all together picked about 45 pounds of blueberries!!! The farm owner inquired if I hired the boys out…LOL

Then Zack and I went to the top of our hill and picked the first of the blackberries. Hopefully there will be a whole lot more in the next couple of weeks!

All that picking worked up an appetite! So I whipped up a quick spaghetti and meatballs with the first beans of the year from the garden. It just hit the spot!

Now what to do with all those berries???

I freeze them at this time of the year. Making jam in the late Fall warms up the house and brings back memories of Summer. Too, berries that have been frozen give up more juice for my jam or jelly:-)
