200 year-old house on 25 rocky acres in high country upstate NY and SO many highbush blueberries!
Sunday, July 18, 2010
This homestead earned some money yesterday! These three pints of blueberries were picked on Thursday, and went to the Hoosick Farmers Market on Friday where they got rained on and were sold by Melanie.
These are small, wild mountain berries. If I spend even a few moments pruning or taking care of the bushes, next year should be bigger and better. There are fewer berries in the upper area this year than last year - I'm thinking animal-related. I may want to think about taking care of those bushes and protecting them, too.
We had a strong series of thunderstorms roll through the area last night, finally breaking the humidity down to reasonable levels.
Here's what I found in the yard this morning:
It's the chimney cap, blown off one of the chimneys. Thankfully, it didn't land on the car!
