Berry-picking... oh my - the weather has been wonderful, and the bushes are full of lovely red currants! Blacks are almost non-existent this year for some reason, but these glorious reds we have plenty. We had a family picking (and a picnic after) last weekend, and within a few moments we gathered more than 25 litres, and now they're resting happily in my freezer. Ready for those dark and miserable winter days, to make wonderful summer-smoothies. Strawberries were frozen a few weeks ago too, and we're planning to have a little blueberry-picking trip soon too. Wonders of Finnish summer.
Picking will most probably continue this evening still, as unfortunately I haven't yet heard of Karen, who was the winner of my giveaway a week ago. I have tried to contact her several times, and let her know that I will be picking a new winner this evening if I will no hear from her today. So all of you, who were participating, please watch this space! And for once it's great to be a hoarder, who never tosses anything quite yet - I still have your names in that Moomin-jug... To be re-picked if needed! To be continued...
Happy Tuesday, see you here soon!
