Still no Violet Beauregarde

Yesterday, after one whole week of wanting to pick more blueberries to make blueberry crisp, blueberry muffins, blueberry pancakes, blueberries straight up, etc. I started out on my journey to go to the super secret blueberry patch. It was not raining at my house, and I thought YIPEEE! what a perfect berry day with no sun and cool July weather, so I started south on I-65 to Franklin with much anticipation. It got darker, stormier, and then it was pouring down buckets like in the movies. It was pouring so hard I almost had to pull over. My heart sank the further I drove into the storm. I got off the highway at the exit, and as I made my turn down the super secret road, it started to clear up some. By the time I got to the bluberry patch, it drizzled for anther 5 minutes, and it stopped raining. It turned out to be the best blueberry picking day yet! Ah, blueberries!

YUM! I can just taste the Tennessee blueberries from here! I'm glad you braved the storm. And if you feel inspired, my mom posted her (award-winning) Blueberry Almond Tart recipe on her blog (www.grandmasgarden.blogspot.com). That's the one I made for the block party, and it demands a lot of blueberries.
Out here in CA, blueberry season is just two more weeks. Wah! Then we'll be doomed to expensive Chilean tasteless berries through the rest of the year!!!
