It has been hot here in Missouri, and summer has not even started! We also found out, to our chagrin, that in Florida where our daughter and her family has been residing it has been about ten degrees cooler. It does seem that quite frequently John and I have traveled to the wrong place at the wrong time. Fortunately Missouri has benefited from some good spring rains, and the hot sun has not scorched and burned everything. We drove to Farmington this past weekend where there is a good crop of blueberries at Liberty Farms. Our niece Miriam and I picked about a total of 12 pounds of blueberries. The day after we picked I returned to the farms accompanied by John and his sister Carolyn for the Liberty Farm's Blueberry Festival. A blueberry dessert contest was held for the festivities and an impressive array of those goodies were on display.
