Blueberries again

On August 19 we finally made it to Honor and the Straubel’s blueberry patch.
Remember Joe the Bachelor and I went on July 30th or so to get blueberries there
but the place was still closed.
Blueberry picking at the Straubels begins on August 1st.
I couldn’t go the next day, but I made it 18 days later.

The boys came along after I urged, errrr…. threatened them with
“no dinner if you don’t help”  – that worked.

Hmmm,  the place had been picked over like I have never seen it before.
Kind of sad, we left after only getting one quart picked.
Too bad because they have the best berries
– watered only with the water from the creek –
no chemicals what so ever.

And last, a really cool looking gnarly tree 🙂

  1. I wondered about the blueberries this year. We didn’t get a chance to pick any. There is always next year, I guess. 🙂 Glad the boys obliged you.

  2. Look like a tree Gwen Frostic would have chosen!
    Love her prints and glad to hear they are open for business.
