Day 41 - Blueberries

I can't believe this is the last week of July. Summer is going waaaay to fast, August is almost here. This is around the time of year I recall as a kid starting one of my summer jobs - blueberry picking. Cumberland county, Oxford specifically, is the wild blueberry capital of Canada. Nova Scotia's wild blueberries are exported to the United States, Japan, Germany, United Kingdom and other countries.

Health fact: Wild blueberries are high in antioxidants which have many health benefits including anti-aging effects, cancer inhibiting properties, and heart health. They are also really tasty in pancakes and on cereal.
