Spam I Am Not (and I Like Blueberries)

June's been a wild month and I can't wait for it to be over. Vacation out West rocked. (Photos are still being uploaded) but searching for "other opportunities" has drained me. Anyway, I went to make this post but Blogger had this blog locked as a potential spam blog! Long story short, Blogger has now verified this is NOT a spam blog so I can go on my merry way to posting...

And what do I have to say? Well, it's blueberry season so ya better get pickin! One of the first things I did when I moved to Tallahassee two years ago was go blueberry picking. Somehow I missed blueberry season last year and was determined not to miss it this year. So, off I went this morning to Beare's Berries in Havana (7858 Havana Highway, Havana, FL 32333, Tel: 850 539-5346).

Was told the bushes had been picked over but to reach high in the bigger bushes. About an hour later, I left with four pounds of luscious little berries and a few spiders in my hair (yuck!). If you head over to Beare's Berries, call to make sure they have berries, bring some bug spray if you can't tolerate bugs, sunscreen and water.

Not sure what I'll be doing with them but read on Tallahassee.com that this Tuesday, June 26, there's a blueberry wine making workshop at New Leaf Market. Begins at 7:30. Don't think I have enough blueberries to make wine but should be interesting.

Since it's been a while, enjoy a recent article I wrote called, "Guide to Trashy Tallahassee: Three Must-See Attractions."

I guess there won't be enough for jam! Eat 'em plain with your cornflakes very healthy food.
