First Hurdle Cleared

Thursday and Friday, Saturday and Sunday were tricky. The Mouse King slowed to a crawl as I worked my way through one of the non-existent, but necessary, sections. The end result works. Now I'm off to continue at break-neck speed to the next sticky wicket. And E has her end of year party at 11:30, cutting my day a bit short. And I haven't had a shower and washed my hair yet. :::throws hand against forehead::: Oh my, the trials I go through.

Frog Out

Pie #1 from Bush #1 (I'm great with names, aren't I?)
I had to use a smaller pie plate than usual because I barely had a quart of blueberries. They're close, but just not quite perfect yet. I had to use more sugar than I like. But it was Father's Day, so E and I picked what we could for my father and hers. And then we set about to destroy pie #1...one tiny piece remains.

Soon, my pretties, soon. I'll be shipping blueberries to Tucson very soon. And some to Boston, too.

Yummy-looking pie! I feel blueberry envy because the bush Louise planted in our yard last year only produced a few berries. Guess I need to be patient.

very, very patient. I have 11 bushes, five were here when we bought the place 5 years ago and are my best producers. The others have barely started and I put them in 3 seasons ago. But I would suggest you get a second bush of a different variety. Cross-pollination is said to be key to producing lots of berries.

Rhiannon (2) walked by just as I reached your post and went, 'yum, yum, pie.'

There will certainly still be lots of berries on July 8. The trick is shipping them. They will actually do better in Express Mail than in my carry-on luggage. I know we have kitchenettes, but what about the other ingredients? Unless, of course, we're just going to pig out on the berries themselves. We could easily do pancakes, I'll bet. One massive pancake breakfast for all comers.
