Had a friend pick up Maine lobsters for $2.50 a pound off the boat on the coast of Maine. Whoaaaa. Maybe having a little lobster for the holidays, say a stew Christmas Eve would make the season brighter. Or a fresh made Maine blueberry pie with some vanilla ice cream on it could finish the perfect meal this holiday season. Learn about the 60,000 acres of blueberries grown in Maine. This year's crop was big..90 million pounds compared to the 75 million average. Roughly a 40% drop in price this year due to the large yield in Maine and Canada. Wild Maine blueberries usually sell fro around $1.16 a pound to cooperatives but this year some growers are letting them go for 64 cents a pound. Hard work in the sun to rake them too! But nothing like being out on the cold, windy, big wave Maine coast dropping and hoisting lobby tracks on the open sea. Having the product shipped to you is a piece of cake too...you see at the Maine airports easy, quick ways to sign up to have some Maine lobster packed in seaweed and waiting for you when you get home. What's on your menu for Christmas and New Year's this season?
