Did you know that July is national blueberry picking month? Yep and boy do we love them. Blueberry’s are such a hit in my house that my kids ate two pints in two days. I’m planning on starting pick-your-own blueberries as soon as we get our farm. I can’t wait to find it. But the problem is we have not found it yet. I found a great one in Oklahoma and we are hoping to set up a work-in on that. A work-in leads to eventual buying out but as of right now we cannot afford to buy out.
So we will use our sweat equity-what else is there really. Sometimes I wish that we lived back during the land rush we would have had at least more opportunity to get land!
I keep hoping because that is what we are called to do. Do you know what a city does to a farmboy? Well, that’s what it is doing to my husband.
Anyhow Blueberries are ripe for the picking in the Northeast and we are taking the kids.
But first we are going to read Blueberries for Sal-great book!
Learn about them-wehre they grow and what color they are. Cook with them and more.
Check out Pick-your-own.org to find the best spots. Remember they have a short growing season and fresh off the bush are so much better than picking up a pint from the store.
