"He causeth the grass to grow for food, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth a man's heart." ~Psalm 104: 14-15


Blueberry picking (sans bugs)

Went out blueberry picking for the first time. (That's when we mixed up some of this essential oil bug repellant, to keep the chiggers, mosquitoes, and ticks at bay. Sure did the trick ~ only got one bite the whole morning!)  I picked that pail (almost) full that you see above! :]  (It was 3/4 of a gallon.) After eating my fill for the rest of the week, I took the remainder home to my family at the end of my trip. Mama had fresh blueberry muffins for her birthday gift.

Lesson learned out there? 

If you don't like the taste of the berries as you pick them, you wont want to eat them later either; look for a sweet bush, then pick the darkest, plumpest bluest berries you can find.

(Also, a bug repellant that is excellent will even keep bugs away from a mosquito magnet such as myself.)

What do you do with your fresh blueberries? Do you have any favorite blueberry recipes?
