Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and even a few blackberries are in season around here, and I fully intend to do my part to eat a lot of them. Today I ate a pint each of blueberries and raspberries that I picked up at the farmer’s market, and they were delicious! I just munched my way through them as I ran some errands downtown. ’twas perfect.
I planted three blueberry bushes in our yard this spring, but they won’t actually bear fruit for quite some time… We should get some raspberries from the plants we put in last fall, however. And we have been enjoying strawberries for about a month now (the ones I managed to snag before the slugs get them, that is). It’s so much easier to eat well during the summer.
