We went to one of our friends house yesterday evening to take him a cover he wanted me to fix him for putting over his boat motor. We got there and the table was full of blueberries. I ask, where did you get all these? She tells me of another friend of ours where she got them from. They usually sell to a guy but the guy said the bottom had dropped out on them and he didn’t give him but .25 a pound for them after he was having to pay the picker .50 a pound. So the rest he is letting friends get. She told us to call him so DH did. So long story short we went this morning and picked around 4 gallons of them. We just got finished putting them in the bags. I got 17 quart bags of them and they are packed bags. lol My plans are to make some jelly or jam with them and make it with Splenda. :) We have eaten our fill of them. Dh stated we should have gotten our antioxidants for today. lol Wanted to show you a pic of how pretty these things are. I hate it for them though that they didn’t get the money they should have gotten for them. We gave them some money for ours but I have no idea how much these things go for these days, so it may not been enough. ?? She didn’t want to take it but DH put it in her pocket. lol
After we got done picking them which didn’t take long at all, we were heading back to their house for a little visit when we spied these little Bob Whites. So we stopped to smell the roses one more time and took some pix. lol They are SO CUTE scooting out across the grass.
There was 5 of them but I don’t see the 5th one on this last pic. He may be hidin’ in the grass. ;)
