Of fruit. Is how much I bought within eight days.
I picked 13 pounds of unsprayed blueberries in the shadow of Mount Si, at good old Bybee Farms in North Bend. It's always a challenge to stop picking, with heavy branches always within easy reach. I got my berries cleaned and bagged for my freezer within the day.
The weekend before, I'd bought what I thought was a box of nectarines for the freezer. Unfortunately, they turned out to be the fragile white ones. They're in the freezer though, now, along with two bags, so far, of the yellow nectarines I bought the following weekend. Plus, I bought peaches. Mostly I'm just eating the peaches fresh -- great, mouth-filling slices with soy milk for breakfast, slices with cornbread as a sort of shortcake dessert -- though I have at least one peach pie in my weekend plans.
In my hallway sits the 40-pound box of apples I bought for applesauce. But it's too nice out! I just never expect a nice day in Seattle, and when I get them, I can't make myself stay indoors.
Fortunately, apples keep.
