It was the second time we picked blueberries. The first time was just a test run, so to speak. Hubby has a certain obsession with blueberry rake. When he accidentally found that secret blueberry field he searched online for blueberry rake and bought right that very minute a rake about 4 inches in size for $42 (including handling and shipment). I was freaking out. He was worse than a “kid” in a candy store… or worse than me in a “shoes” store. OH... men!
And while he was waiting for the rake to come in the mail, he bought some materials from Home Depot and made himself a blueberry rake out of wood. I know! I know! I know exactly what you are thinking. I was thinking… “What the heck? You shouldn’t have bought that $42 rake anymore since you can make it yourself.” Oh well, I know I will get this answer… “That one coming from the mail is better than this one I am making.” That’s why I didn’t say it anymore. End of conversation.
The $42 blueberry rake that Hubby bought online.
The upside: I have blueberries on my cereals every breakfast for at least a couple of weeks until I puke. And a whole lot more for blueberry pie, blueberry cakes, blueberry muffins, blueberry crisp, blueberry smoothies and I can cook up another post for each one of them too. But I know I can't complain now because these blueberries are wild and organic and they are good source of anti-oxidants but I am already dreaming about blueberries too.
And the downside: I had to eat them alone because… hubby doesn’t eat blueberries! [He is just crazy about picking them and not eating them] Grrrrrrrr!
