    Well, the drought has finally been broken in the Wisco northwoods.

    Blueberries popped out on the back 40!

    Did my best impression of an illeg...er...."undocumented worker" yesterday and momma made nummy blueberry pancakes and syrup for breakfast.

    Thank you very much.

    Did you hang out in the town square and jump into the backs of pickup trucks when the driver waved?

    Thats a strange way to spend a Saturday...

    I miss the blackberries we had living in the country.
    Blueberries are about $3/pint around here.

    Actually I think New Jersey is the blueberry capital of the world. (although Maine might be the lowbush blueberry capital, I'm not sure about that)

    New Jersey is also the cranberry capital, incidently.

    Bet you thought (as I did) that it was in Massachusetts, didn't you?

    They didn't name it the GARDEN STATE for nothing, ya know.

    Maines primary export is poor kids trying to find work, I think.

    Been that way for years, actually.

    I agree. I believe that NJ is leading producer of large berry cultivated blueberries...but those big berries lack flavor.

    Read this NOW.
