Blueberry Picking

We live about 1.5 miles down the road from a blueberry farm, and we love to go picking each July! 

This year, Aunt Deb and cousin Katelynn came down to pick with us!  It’s always more fun with family along!  We met for lunch at Subway, and then we spent a fun afternoon picking blueberries and watching frogs in the ditch.


Alex discovered frogs in the ditch behind us, and we all took a break to watch bunches & bunches of frogs hopping around in the ditch!  (There are two under the plant, but you have to look closely.)



all done…carrying our baskets to weigh & to pay for our blueberries
(Jensyn’s bucket was almost empty, but she was proud of it.  She was quite upset when she couldn’t take home the bucket!)


All together, the kids & I picked 28 cups of berries for just a little over $16. 

Alex helped me bag up the berries and get them in the freezer, and we also shared a bag with our neighbor…who returned the favor by sharing homemade cookies with us!


We had DELICIOUS blueberry muffins for breakfast the next morning, and we enjoyed blueberry pancakes the morning after that.  Now, we have a freezer full of berries for muffins, pancakes, pies, and smoothies.  YUM!
