The blueberries arrived early this year, thankfully! We leave for California during the peak of the usual season... I'm so happy it arrived NOW. I'll be filling the freezer over the next week with the help of those good pickers above. My children started their training as soon as they could eat berries. That's a lot of practice. I never push them, and they always tire long before me, but dang they helped a lot yesterday. Here's me looking into a bucket... quite pleased.
In a very short time we had two giant buckets! It will only take a few more trips... maybe a breakfast run and a dessert run. Our farm is around the corner, so we plan our picking around meals, of course.
I am so grateful for all of our favorite summer traditions and long unhurried days together. These are our anchors in the uncharted world of "three" that we navigate daily. Since I have always been home with my children, summers together feel familiar and very much "the same". This warm season is the blessing I've been needing. Nothing like buckets of berries to chase the blues away!
