Now that our tank hole has been dug out, I have Saturday morning free of slave manual labour, anyone wish to join me foraging for blueberries in Ohaupo? Pick your own, $7.50 a kilo - and there is a cafe there too :D

Yes, that's the place, about 9ish? Can beat the heat if it is a scorcher. Our usually full blueberry bush has let us down this year, not enough water, I think...[V]

Hey, you're back! You missed a great morning tea gathering this morning [:I] hope your trip was lovely.

Got back today. I don't think cruising is for me. Might be the ten metre swells and the 50km winds. Got the tail end of cyclone Gene for three days. It was a lot more than that though - fill you in on Saturday.

Yep :D see you there at 9? Whereabouts is this place? All I know so far is Jary Road, Ohaupo - is it off the main drag?

Well, that was worth it (apart from me taking a wrong turn and getting lost [:I]) I got 3kg and TKP got 3.8kg, in just over an hour :D

All packed away in the freezer - a good mornings effort.
Now - about those corn cobs.....

Okay, next thread, we're on a roll! :D

BTW...have we missed peach/nectarine/apple season? Haven't seen any advertised in bulk/PYO anywhere...

Well done, we got invited to pick blackberries on our neighbours property yesterday, and our apples are just ready, so I have been busy at it this morning and done some bottling and mad pies and apple shortcake for tonight. Yum:D

A few years ago I went mad and made a couple of dozen apple and blueberry pies and froze them, great in winter heated up with icecream. Our apples are almost ready, so may do that again this year.

Must remember to leave space in freezer for Stewie :D

Thats why I bottle them.

Then the filling is all made and ready for the pastry or crumble topping, and no room is taken up in the freezer at all.:)
