|Blueberry jam, chutney & sauce|
I went the first day by myself and picked about 29 pounds. All those were frozen for Hubby to use on his cereal throughout the year. And, he'll use them all up, too!!! A couple of weeks later, he and I both went up to the blueberry farm and picked another 28 pounds. I used most of those to make these cooked items. However, I got so tired of looking at blueberries that I did give away a big bag full of them. Just couldn't stand looking at or handling another one.
Dr. Lundy grows many, many different varieties of blueberries, both high bush and rabbit eye. He encourages grazing until you find the one you think tastes best and then you start picking. His bushes are very well groomed and cared for, making it very easy to pick lots of berries in a short period of time.
As for my sewing, I finally got the borders on my Island Chain quilt.

I also went on one expedition. My Birdlady friend led a birding field trip up to Blackwater State Forest but I couldn't attend due to family obligations. At any rate, the next day she called me all excited. She wanted to take me to see something special and wondered if I was free that afternoon. Sure, why not, so off I went to her house. She took me back to the forest to Tetlow Bog, at least that's what we all call it. There in the bog were the most gorgeous pitcher plants!!!!
There was also a lovely little purple orchid. Its blossom was just a tiny little thing about an inch big.
Whew, enough for now. I'll be back soon.
Y'all take care.
