Summer Harvest 1

Blueberry season is winding down and I have spent several sweaty hours removing fruit from my mom's trees.  With temperatures sneaking over a hundred this is no task for the faint of heart.  The birds take great offense to my efforts, sitting in the nearby pine trees screeching at me most of the time, but the heat and the harrassment is well worth the freezer full of berries and the results of my first time making blueberry jam.  I've yet to taste my first batch, and want to try spiced blueberry jam next, but will report back on my efforts soon.

(The umbrella was genius, its amazing how refreshing a little shade can be)
