Quiet, Rainy 4th

As I think it was for most of the east coast, the 4th of July (Day 15 of my 66 days), was a rainy day. Something about rain seems to bring a sense of calmness. We moved around the house quietly and kept things low key. It was also a perfect day to bring back a recipe I hadn’t made for several years: mixed berry pie.

4th of July pie

It is not easy to get the “perfect” timing for all the berries being their freshest and most local! Strawberries are the first to arrive here -usually around Father’s Day and petering out around the 4th of July. My raspberries usually start to get going at the beginning of July. Local blueberries seem to appear mid-July. I decided to go for this pie yesterday because I had what might be my last batch of local strawberries and the blueberries were from New Jersey – not so very far geographically! Plus this pie just happens to be red, white and blue!

  3. Oh gosh! That looks so good!! I think the quietness is one of the reasons I appreciate rainy days (as long as there aren’t too many of them strung together!).

    • A delicious and easy recipe Robin – you should give it a try! Yes, a rainy here and there when we need it for the lawn and gardens is just fine – many in a row are depressing!

  4. We bought our first local strawberries yesterday on our way home from the airport yesterday. They are still a bit tart, although a few of them taste like heaven. I concur with Sybil about those three pounds. πŸ™‚
