Bye-Bye Berries

Here they are: The last of this season's farm fresh berries. I picked up the blueberries at Wednesday's farmers' market, and I'm trying to make them last as long as possible (which won't be long). When I was at the market yesterday, I learned that the blueberries are officially done for the season and that the raspberries I was buying marked the end of the line.

It will now be a good 8 months before I can buy fresh, Maine-grown berries. But I'm thankful that the frozen Moon Hill Farm berries are back in the freezer case at my local grocery store. They'll give my taste buds the needed sweetness and tang to make it through the coming winter.

Oh the end of the berries! We've now moved into apple season...but I wish I could have frozen more berries this summer. Just kept eating them!

You have a really long berry season! Ours were gone about two months ago. Sad times.

You are lucky to still have berries - but isn't it sad that they are going away? Thankfully there is apple season.

Wow! I can't believe ya'll still have berries up there! We've been out for months....it always flies by too soon. Thankfully, I got a big bag of local blackberries frozen from earlier this spring.
