Even with the cool wet weather we've had in the Willamette Valley, Oregon, my blueberries are coming on at a very rapid rate. Today, I picked about 6 cups. Of the 8 Blueberry plants in my garden, (all different varities) 4 are heavy laden. I will be picking
for a week or so straight to get all the ripe ones picked, washed and frozen. (I freeze on a cookie sheet in single layers) I'll be making blueberry syrup, blueberry sauce for those "Lemon Lavendar" cupcakes I'm making and compote for meat dishes during the
Holidays. I also bag clean and frozen blueberries in sandwich sized baggies in 1 cup amounts for smoothies. And, of course I do eat them fresh too right off the bush; mostly while picking. That's what makes it all so much fun!
