Fortunately, I am blessed with an abundance of wild berries every summer. In fact, I've recently visited the berry patch, returning home with heaps of blueberries and raspberries. I enjoy eating many (maybe TOO many, lol) of the berries in their natural state, but I also get a thrill out of creating delicious desserts with these beauties.
So back to the berry patch - I'd love to share with you, some pictures of what blueberry country looks like. This particular patch is almost an hour's drive from my house, but there are hundreds of spots - some closer, and some even further away. If you think it doesn't look like much, you're right! This is called a "cut over", where large plots of trees have been cut down (huge logging industry up here). The blueberries THRIVE in this sandy bedded environment!
I'm blissed out in the bluberries! You can get an idea of how big the bushes are. Pretty small! It's the squatting game the whole time, but some people bring little stools to sit on.
Tonight I'll be searching out another spot and then it's back to the patch next weekend, for more picking to my heart's content 😀
