Blueberry Picking

Our annual trek to the blueberry farm was today. It is a July tradition for us and one we look forward to every year!

The weather was perfect, with a rainstorm the night before and overcast skies it kept many of the blueberry pickers away. When we arrived around 10AM there were only ten cars in the parking area, a rarity during July at this farm. With morning temps and a cool breeze it made for a longer more enjoyable berry picking day.

We came home with 2 1/2 pounds of blueberries that we now get to use in all kinds of recipes, and I am sure we will have a few left to freeze for the winter.
