Blueberries

Today we took a drive to Charlottetown to go to Old Home Week, our provincial exhibition. The main reason I wanted to go was to check out the Handicraft exhibits. I had entered quite a bit of knitting, and I wanted to see if I got any ribbons. No pictures yet, as I can't pick up my items until next week, but I got at least four 1st place ribbons, several 2nd places, and a 3rd place.

On our way to Charlottetown, we noticed that the blueberry u-pick was open, so on our way home we stopped to pick some berries.


We ended up with 22 lbs. of berries for the freezer, and we'll probably go back again for a few more.

Our garden has been producing well. Last week I made dill pickles, pickled beets, and canned beans. Tomorrow I hope to make a few more dill pickles, and some bread and butter pickles. Here are a few pictures from the last pickling session.
