Joining Kim with a glimpse into our day.

25 July 2014


We have about 10 blueberry bushes that were already here when we first moved onto our farm.
In the first week of July, we harvested a random blueberry every other day or so.  Then we picked a quart about 10 days ago.  Since then, we've picked 24 more.  Today, while I was at work, a very kind friend picked 8 quarts for our freezer (OUR freezer!)
People often ask us why we don't sell them...berries sell so well at our markets.
But it's worth so much more to us to enjoy them during the summer months and freeze or can them for the winter months.  Like most things on our farm, the food that we enjoy or store away is worth much more to us than the money we could make selling it.

Phew--it's been a busy week.  So busy that I haven't taken my camera out... and I never ended up posting about all of the delicious blueberries we are picking right now.  

These are some quick photos from today...

sweet corn!

Mostly the high tunnel... although a cute photo of our dirty farmgirl and some ripening berries (another post about those later this week...)

We enjoyed our first tomato this week!  Delicious!
