A Very Berry Weekend



Strawberries and cherries (sour and sweet) from the farmer's market this morning and blueberries picked from my blueberry bush. I have plans for those strawberries and sour cherries, but haven't decided on anything yet for the sweet cherries and blueberries. Stay tuned...

Hi Cathy,

YAY! It's blueberry time again! =) Lucky you...I just got some raspberries from the grocery the other day and I'm still deciding what to make with them.

I wish we could find a farmer's market around here, but it seems they've all been closed for one reason or another. I really miss that...enjoy your berries and cherries!

There's nothing I love more than sweet cherries! I could never make anything with them...they don't last long enough without being eaten by me! I live for cherry season every year. What are your plans for the sour cherries...or will we find out soon enough?

M and I tried finding somewhere to buy a truckload of berries today as we went out cruising the country side - alas, no luck! I will salivate over yours instead then...

Hi Jennifer - yup, it's pretty great having all these at once! I was really excited to find the sour cherries.

Hi Reid! Yes it is! Raspberries sound pretty wonderful too. When I have some delicious fruit, I'm always torn between making something with it and just eating it out of hand. Or, in the case of my blueberries, on my cereal! :P

Hi Stephanie! I wish this market was closer to where I live, but I feel lucky to have access to it at all. The really good farmer's markets I've been too are so popular, that I'm always surprised there aren't more around. I guess, though, it requires a perfect mix of location and participating farmers to make a market work.

Hi Alice - at least some of the sweet cherries will definitely be eaten "as is"! (The sour cherries were for jam - yum!)

Hi Zarah - sorry you weren't successful in your quest - maybe next weekend. Searching the countryside for fresh berries sounds like a great way to a weekend, especially when there's no studying to be done!!
