Summer Is…


…blueberries. At least, here in Maine they are a summer staple. Our favorite local orchard grows them organically, and they are perfectly ripe and delicious. A pint doesn’t last 24 hours in this house before being devoured. Simon helped to rinse some in the sink today, and he simply could not contain his excitement as he shoveled bites into his mouth with one hand, while he was still washing them with the other.

Our salad at dinner one recent evening consisted of organic greens, chopped avocado, a handful of walnuts, and these fantastic, sweet blueberries. Perfect.

  1. They are a summer staple here in our home in Ohio too! In fact I took a pint with me to the park and the kiddos devoured them…, my daughter calls them nature’s candy. I have never tried them on a salad but that sounds delicious!
