How I spent my 4th.

I have a new 4th of July tradition that lets someone else do the heavy lifting.

I went blueberry picking at Nesbit Blueberry Farm with my friend Susan, and although I didn't grow the berries, I did turn the bucket of berries I picked into my first blueberry pie and six jars of blueberry jam. It was a very satisfying Martha moment.


  1. do you make the crust from scratch? I would kill for homemade pie crust. Let me know re: crust and if yes, do you need anyone killed?

  2. Sorry to disappoint you, but it's the refrigerated kind, not frozen, which is a little closer to homemade. I have started working on my own pie crust though; it's one of my goals for the year, so hold on to that contract offer. I did wash the pie crust with an egg wash, which is a good trick for making people think the crust is from scratch.

  3. Oh! I make an awesome pic crust from scratch! I am actually about to venture into making my first blueberry pie and will show pics/ recipe of the best pic crust if you want to check it out!
