Most folks know Oregon is a mecca for berry lovers. So why buy these at Safeway??
$3.99 a pint – pffft! Look what I got today? 44 pounds of berries for way less than 4 bucks a pint. Take that Safeway! And yes, you read that right – 44 lbs. It basically translates into 44 of those little pints you buy in the grocery store.
I set aside my long work to-do list this afternoon, and went out to an awesome farm about 30 minutes from our house and wandered and picked for a few hours. The goods came out to be 25 lbs of organic blueberries, 14 lbs of organic blackberries, and 5 lbs of organic raspberries.
I’m still contemplating what to do with all of them in addition to using them in the smoothie I make every morning, but they are all cleaned and ready to go – freezer is fully stocked. Yum!
