Blueberry picking

Today we went to Dufort farms in Rehoboth  owned byJohn and Carolyn Dufort.We buy our meat from this farm but they also have blueberry picking.We picked 10 lbs.It was a beautiful day to be out after all the high heat we have been having.I lost  my glasses in the bushes and Carolyn  found them for me.John  then gave us directions home to avoid rt 44 rush hour.We came across a car show then found a farm in Myrick Ma ( first time I heard of it) wih beautiful sunflowers.We bought flowers,corn and great tomatoes.What a beautiful way to spend a summer afternoon.We will freeze some berries and I will Make a pie,we made this cocktail when we arrived home.DUFORT SMASH,
Muddle a 1/2 handful berries in a rocks glass, add a Shot of vodka fill to top with lemonade and add a slice of lemon and a sprig of mint and enjoy! Dinner was all local, beets,corn,tomato,potato salad,all produce and eggs from local farms.
