It’s August – harvest isn’t too far away, and there are berries out there needing picking! Blueberries aren’t a native crop to the UK, but we are lucky enough to live near a blueberry PYO farm. They have such a short season, and are such a firm favourite, that we are lucky that we can pick our own body weight of them for pennies (compared with store bought, anyway).
For the first time ever the boys actually picked blueberries instead of running off to find bugs and frogs and we managed to pick a few kilos in no time at all. Which was convenient, as we were the last customers who pulled in ten minutes before closing!
Pie and jam are now firmly ensconced in our fridge. But not for long I think….
