Just Some Ramblings

I’ve been told I love to ramble on, so why not pass along some of my ramblings from this past month.

Hoping all of you are doing well and staying safe. Maybe we are starting to see an end to it all and slowly get back to a new normal in our lives. I sure do miss hugs and seeing my peeps!!

Blueberry Picking

It’s blueberry season in Central Florida and I was able to go to my favorite u-pick farm. They were certainly practicing social distancing and cleaning each bucket as we brought them back in. There wasn’t that many people there, but we all stayed away from each other and there was no one on my row.

Freezing Blueberries

Freezing blueberries is very easy to do in 3 simple steps.

  1. Wash thoroughly and let completely dry on a cloth-lined sheet pan. I usually let them dry overnight. 
  2. Remove the cloth and make sure the berries are in a single layer on the sheet pan. Place in the freezer overnight.
  3. Place in freezer containers and that’s it! 

I enjoy blueberries all year in my smoothies and since they are already frozen, I don’t have to add ice to the mixer.

April is the time when we start seeing the signs of spring. That burst of bright yellow of daffodils emerging from the ground. You can also grow daffodils in a pot indoors as @katja.maino is showing in this lovely Instagram picture.

  1. I’ve just bookmarked this post. I need to check each of the gift ideas because I’ve yet to see any of these ideas anywhere. It’s a struggle to come up with fresh ideas each year but you’ve hit the nail on the head! Thank you, Tammy 🙂

  2. Ooo I love blueberries as well! And you have some great gift ideas. I’ve been on Etsy searching for stuff. My mom loves horses so I was able to find something there.

  3. Yum, blueberries are a favorite of ours too, but I’ve never actually picked them myself. Thanks for sharing these ideas!

  4. So many great ideas here. Thank you. I need some berries but none of our farms are open for that nor are any berries ready yet here. I feel like they might be ready at some point in the4 summer but not yet. Anyways for now I will have to settle for frozen.

  5. I love pick your own farms, I’ve not been for years, bar to pick up pre-picked bits. I wonder what they will do this year, if people aren’t out of lockdown to pick things here.

  6. We are still a few months away from being able to pick our own blueberries here, but I’m looking forward to it. I love your gift suggestions, I’d love to get the Honey Bee Habitat!

  7. I can’t believe it’s May already. Those blueberries look beautiful. It would be so fun to take kids to pick them.

  8. I love your ramblings! And thank you for the tips on freezing blueberries!

  9. I have not picked blueberries in such a long time. Maybe at the end of all this I can get out there and start picking!

  10. I am jealous now getting fresh blueberries are wonderful . Glad that everybody practicing social distancing.

  11. My kids love blueberries. I am sure that they will love to pick their own blueberries at the farm!
