Blueberries and chickens

Ebba found a place selling U-pick blueberries for $1.25 per pound just south of town. We picked for about two hours and came home with 24 pounds of berries for $30. We have been eating our fill all day, and most will go into the deep freeze for cobblers and pancakes throughout the year.

The farmer with the blueberries also had about 25 young chickens, about the same age as our last batch of chicks. Two of his “hens” turned out to be roosters, and he wanted to be rid of them. Since we were about ready to eat our last two remaining roosters from our chick order, we brought home two free roosters in an apple box and spent the evening plucking and butchering four chickens.

Not a bad way to spend a hot July day…
