Summer definitely hasn’t left us just yet ~ the temperatures yesterday were in the high 80’s and that is pretty warm for our area! I opened up the bedroom window to give just a bit of relief for sleeping but I didn’t feel even the slightest breeze! It is cooler and cloudy today and the outlook for the next few days is showing some rain.
We went blueberry picking again yesterday! This is a different farm than we went last time but it is a pretty place. They have the cutest little produce house with a wraparound porch and a porch swing. We were swinging there and enjoying the view when I took the picture above. I could easily have sat there for a long time enjoying this lovely spot! We came home and Bill helped me package up the berries for the freezer. It is always a lovely sight to see the freezer filling with good things for the winter! ♥
Going blueberry picking has been one of our summer traditions for many years ~ although some of us enjoy it more than others! I really enjoy being out at the farm and take great joy in this little summer pleasure! I would have liked to stay longer but it was just too hot! We ended up with about 17 1/2 pounds this time! Bill made us a couple more berry picking pails before we left so we have 4 of them now!
“The woods were full of other wagons, and other families berrying. They laughed and sang, and all among the trees you could hear their talking. Every year they all met friends here, that they didn’t see at any other time. But all of them were busily picking berries; they talked while they worked…Early in the afternoon the bushel baskets and all the pails were full, and Father drove home. They were all a little sleepy, soaked in sunshine and breathing the fruity smell of the berries.”
