6 more quarts of blueberries ~ mid August
1 lb of basil = 6 (2 cup) freezer bags
7 pints of pickled beets (recipe next Monday)
4 more quarts of blueberries ~ mid September not u-pick, 8 lbs for $20. yikes.

I find it odd you, who love the creationism, cronyism and small minded- book banning agenda of Sarah Palin, continue to claim to be a teacher, and have Mary Oliver poems on your blog. I doubt Mary Oliver would like the association.

Esther! Do you really think that Mary Oliver wants to be only appreciated by people with like politics? That would amaze me. And, if you read the article, you will learn that EVEN THE LIBRARIAN Palin questioned affirms that Palin did not ask to ban books, she asked a procedural questions. Very different.

I don't even know what to do with the remark about claiming to be a teacher. I go to class and I teach and I get a paycheck and at the end of the quarter students report that they learned a lot and their writing (for the most part) is much improved, so it seems pretty clear to me that I'm a teacher. You seem to be operating under the impression that conservatives can't be teachers. Even my liberal friends would object to eliminating quality instructors based on political differences. Perhaps I misunderstood your statement . . .
