After a heavy rain last night the blueberry bushes were full of water so needless to say I had a natural shower while picking those blue gems! Picking was just a tad slower this morning with my left hand having gone through surgery on Wednesday.......but those blueberries wait for no one! They gotta be picked & picked they got before the sun peeked it's hot head out from behind the scattered clouds.
Just after picking this is what I get. Ok now, I know you see some pinkies in this batch but a night spread on a paper box lid, they ripen right up! When the blueberries are wet, it's hard to tell which ones are pure blue.......but if I don't pick them the birds will!
This morning while picking blueberries cars drove up & down the street. You got it, a neighborhood yard sale! Thank goodness they didn't look to close at what I was doing......cause it wasn't pretty! I don't dress to impress when picking blueberries. haha My neighbors across the street were hard at work selling their wares........so I decided to cook up a little treat for them.
Blueberry muffins sounded easy & oh so good at that moment......so off I went into the kitchen. Now most folks think I can't cook.......but I keep them fooled!
Into the batter the blueberries went. My they looked so good! Of course I put more blueberries in that the recipe called for. :-) Getting muffin papers out, I got the batter all dished out evenly into each muffin tin.
A little sprinkle of sugar to add a sweet touch to the crust. Into the oven they go! About 15 minutes later this is what I got out. Oh the smell of my kitchen. My dogs got excited at smelling food!
To the above picture I added a pat of butter and trotted over to Robert & Linda's house where they were hard at work selling items at their yard sale. I went in the front door and surprised Linda with the blueberry goodies.
The best part of raising organic blueberries is sharing them with my friends!
