This special feeling towards fruit, its glory and abundance, is I would say universal.... We respond to strawberry fields or cherry orchards with a delight that a cabbage patch or even an elegant vegetable garden cannot provoke. ~Jane Grigson

Yesterday, while out boating, my DD and SIL picked blueberries on the islands in the middle of the lake.

Lots of blueberries.

They filled an empty gallon ziplock bag, and then started filling other various containers they had on hand.

I love blueberries... and these are pretty much organic, so it's even better. I had some on my shredded wheat this a.m. I'm going to make muffins. And then I'm going to freeze the rest.

They won't last long in this house, but it's going to be great while they do.

Yum on the berries. I have a lot of frozen blueberries, thank goodness, but nothing is as good as fresh picked ones. Enjoy.

I have a freezer full of blueberries. Daughter likes them frozen. *G* You've put me in the mood to make some blueberry cobbler.

Have a sensational weekend!

If only I was blueberry fan, alas I'm not. Enjoy your supply.

I used to go blueberry picking every summer when we moved to NH. Loved it. I haven't gone in years though. My mom does and shares the wealth.

We went blueberry picking today. We're lucky if we got 2 cups. Very disappointing.
