My freezer is now full of plump, delicious blueberries.
Rita and I picked ‘em out at Blueberry Blossom farm in Snohomish. Yum.
I also took her nettling for the first time yesterday out in Discovery park, with my other new foraging convert, Rachael.
The secondary growth is not as lush as the spring pick was so we didn’t overpick the colonies, but we all harvested enough to have a few good yummy nettle meals. Rita and I celebrated later that evening, with sauteed nettles and shallots as a side for sweet potato bisque and smoked gouda grilled cheese sandwiches. Mmmmmm…
