We picked 90 pounds this year, much better than last year’s 12. That doesn’t include the ones we ate in the field. If they’d weighed the kids before and after, I would have owed them quite a few more dollars. 🙂
We put 45 pounds right in the freezer, but I’ve got another 40 I want to can. We’ll make the Blueberry Bonanza recipe from the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving, and probably some ready-to-go blueberry sauce from the same book. And I’m also going to try pickled blueberries. Sounds weird, but in a good way.
Good news and bad news on the raccoon front: The good news is we haven’t had any more deaths. The bad news is we haven’t shot it yet and each night my pens take some damage that needs to be repaired in the morning. And, also, I think we have a bobcat.
