Favourite time of the year


My favourite time of the year is finally here - season of fresh berries!
Yesterday we went picking some blueberries after work. There wasn't many in the forest (someone probably was  there before us), but we got enough for making a cake and some dessert cream.
Mosquitoes tried to eat us alive, but both I and Oliver were brave and picked out boxes full of berries.

Blueberries are very good for health, they have a diverse range of micronutrients, with notably high levels of the essential dietary mineral manganese, vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin K and dietary fiber.

I'm not crazy about organic food, but whenever possible, I try to use fresh and clean nutriments from my own area, so I can be sure there are no food  preservatives or E numbers involved.

Are you going to make something with it Ann? Or just eat them like that?

To be honest, half of them we just ate, they taste so good!
But I'm making a blueberry cake in the evening too.

I love blueberries! It's awesome that you picked your own.

Stopping by from SITS.

Sitsgal. Wow, fresh blueberries. Can't even imagine how those taste! I do agree about trying to eat from around your area. My family actually keeps a decent size garden and we have a sun room for it during the winter. (Well almost had. moving soon.) Gosh, now our poor plants might go bye bye?:(

Thanks for such a lovely post, it reminded me our plants will be orphans and I need to figure that out soon. Can't lose all those tomatoes, peppers and everything else!
