The woods are full of blueberries! And it´s a great way to spend time in nature, fill the freezer and contemplate life...berry picking is definitely worth wile doing.
Blueberries is also one of the most health-promoting berries, full of anti-oxidants and of course vitamins and minerals.
It´s also the one berry in our woods that stays for pretty much the whole summer and it´s not that you need to pick it within a couple of weeks, like it is with most other berries . But my experience is that the berries taste the best when they are young.
We are so lucky that our garden is full of blue berries and whenever we need a cake , smoothie or something really yammy ...we go out and pick some of these blue wonders. Johanna with her favorite "berry picker" in hand , is the racer in our family...also the most motivated to make something sweet and tasty! Here is one of her creations ,specially made for me without gluten. Thank you, my sweet Johanna!

Berlin continues to excite and inspire me. The fusion of resource-fullness, originality, design, green and alternative living mixed with a building mass of old and crumbling facade and interiors is what does it for me. And of course it´s people, our friends, good food, and great shopping...Not to mention the prinzessinnengarten that now has published a book with the same name. I bought it in Berlin, but I´m sure you can order it on Amazon. This is a truly inspiring urban garden project that has reached world fame in its very short life time.
