Blueberries are in season so of course I had to find a u-pick farm and a friend to go. This u-pick farm was only a few minutes away from the downtown area. It’s kinda like a hidden patch of greenery that I never knew existed.
In addition to the u-pick blueberries there’s a store where you can buy local produce and even raw honey. They didn’t have any honey yet but I’m going to go back when they do. Also, I learned that a tayberry is a cross between a marionberry and raspberry. I will also return for some of these delicious berries.
Gorgeous day to pick some blueberries. Look at that sky!!
Look at all the shades of blue and purple. I find berry picking relaxing. All you have to do is fill your bucket with yummy ripe berries. It’s not complicated. You get to see a lot of pretty things and you’re away from cars and busy streets. I tend to like going on off peak times as well so I’m not fighting a crowd. Less people means more berries for me :).
Speaking of pretty things….we found a snail. I found couple of these along the way.
Above is my friend hard at work!!! She filled her bucket up pretty well. It was only $1.50/lb for these organic blueberries so why not? My plan for my berries is a blueberry pie. I can’t wait to share it with you!
