Tundra Blueberry Time

Blueberry's grow differently here. They are mostly low to the Tundra and are not as big as the regular blueberries at the store. Sometimes on the tundra along a hillside the bush is taller and produces bigger berries. It doesn't matter though because they taste great, and it is crazy how they just scatter across the tundra. Every where you step there is a blue berry popping out.
Andrew picked with us on this day, and he did really good picking. Ruby didn't eat out of his bucket :) .
We are told by Dorthy that we need to pick 10 gallons for the winter. We have 1/2 gallon saved at this point, and I have made blueberry muffins and blueberry cobbler already.
Ruby absolutely loves to eat tundra blueberries. I caught her stuffing her face and making funny animal noises.
