I forgot to tell you the highlight of my summer this year, which was when I got 10 pounds of freshly picked blueberries. For free!
This is how it came to be – my daughter has a friend whose mom is a friend of a certain nice lady who lives next to a blueberry farm that happened to be undergoing a bank foreclosure.
Tons of blueberries were there, unpicked and unappreciated, basically just wasting away.
So the nice lady invited her friends over, to go on a blueberry-picking adventure, and told the invitees to invite more people. We were those more people.
It was a blazing hot July afternoon, but who would even consider declining such an invitation?! We were lucky to be invited.
We went, and we had a grand time. Ten pounds’ worth of blueberries grand time, exactly.
Naturally, I froze most of them. So, in addition to purple cabbages, my fridge is also bursting with blueberries. I guess we’ll be having lots of purple food for a while.
Incidentally, when summer was over, we found out that the nice lady’s husband ended up being my daughter’s English teacher.
The moral of the story is – it takes a lot of coincidences to be able to get a lot of free blueberries.
