Blueberry Pound Cake

3 eggs, room temp

3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

2 cups sugar

4 cups fresh blueberries

1 cup milk

Grease a 10″ tube pan.  In a large bowl sift together flour, bp, and salt; set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat the butter and sugar on medium speed until well combined.  Beat in eggs.

Stir blueberries into reserved flour mixture.  Then fold the blueberry/flour mixture into the butter  mixture.  Stir in milk just until combined.  Spread batter into the prepared pan.  Bake at 325 degrees F for 60-90 minutes, until a wooden skewer inserted near center comes out clean.  Cool on a wire rack 15 minutes.  Remove from pan and cool completely on wire rack.

The Robins have won. They brought in reinforcements. It is the mid-season variety, Bluecrop that they are munching on. I’m thankful that most of my replants are of the early variety so we will have more and more each year that are bearing before the young Robins fledge.
 
I’m sorry if you waited to get your berries later and then didn’t get any. Believe me I’m very disappointed too but I’ve learned to leave it in God’s hands and not get too worked up about it. I’m just very thankful for the fact that we didn’t have too many berries getting too ripe and not enough people to pick them. The response was overwhelming this year. We had many, many first time pickers come this year from all over the region. We kept track and here are some of the places we logged: Taylor, Centralia, Columbia, St. Louis, Kansas City, Princeton, Farmingtion IA, NE Iowa, Philadelphia, Quincy IL, Lake Ozark, Unionville, Brookfield, Memphis, Edina, Brashear, Moberly, Macon, Kahoka, Bloomfield IA, Knox City, Novelty, & Greentop. Also, there were several from other states and countries. Nebraska, South Dakota, Alabama, Florida, Kentucky, Madison WI, and the countries of Japan, China, Ukraine.
 
We also had many new customers from Kirksville who had never heard about us.
 
So the word is getting out, thanks to all of you who “shared” us or “liked” us on Facebook and who told your friends, relatives, and neighbors about us.
 
As always, my wife & I were in wonderment as to how wonderful our clientele is.
 
I will be posting a video here soon.

Closed today.

We will be closed tomorrow, Saturday, July 2.

Sorry but due to 2 factors we will be closed tomorrow.   1.  Pretty sure thing forcasted for storms with heavy rain after 7am tomorrow morninng.

2.  We are pretty much picked out of ripe berries.  A couple of days ripening will hopefully help a lot.  Hopefully the ripening will out do the Robin’s appetite.
