blueberry boy

The little guy and I spent Saturday night up at my parent's farm. We squeezed a lot into a twenty four hour period. The best part was the blueberries. My dad took us to a neighbor's blueberry patch where we could pick as many blueberries as we wanted for free.

I filled up two three gallon buckets.

It was a wonderful morning. It had rained the night before, but when we arrived the sun was shining and the raindrops were drying on the berries. I have never seen so many blueberries before - some of the bushes were just blue. They were pretty easy to pick. I got six gallons in about two and a half hours. We cleaned and froze most of them, but I put together a blueberry crisp last night and ate a whole row of it with a fork while it was still cooling in the pan.

What do you think of Logan's crawling technique? He swings the one foot up in the air like a counter pendulum and then digs in the toes on his opposite foot to gain forward momentum. I've got it on video. Super sweet. 

My Bloomsbury sweater is knitting up fast. I hope I can keep up this pace. I've almost got the body complete and then I'll start on the sleeves.

Hope you all have a great week.

  1. Wow - look at all those blueberries. I am thinking what you call a fruit crisp is what we call a fruit crumble.

  2. Looks like someone else enjoyed the blueberries? His technique reminds me of a PT exercise I have to learn. Rolling over without using my upper body. They say it's like learning to roll over as a baby. I haven't quite gotten the hang of it yet. LOL

  3. Wonderful! I was just eating a handful of blueberries myself.

  4. Great pictures! Your sweater is coming along beautifully and I can't wait to see the finished project.
