The blueberry farm opened for picking at 8 this morning. We got there about 8:30 and there were already a lot of people there but there were so many plants, it wasn’t crowded at all.
There’s Addie and Vince picking on one row. Addie decided pretty quickly that it was easier for her to reach the berries down lower.
It got pretty hot before we were done so we stopped before Vince was ready to stop. We had already ordered two gallons that they picked and we picked close to a gallon. We picked almost 6 pounds and I think each gallon was about 5 or 6 pounds so we came home with lots of blueberries.
I’m glad they didn’t weigh us before we started and after we finished because I think we all ate our share of blueberries while picking them.
I rinsed them all off and put them on trays to freeze, Then I’ll divide them up into probably 2 cups per bag and vacuum seal them after they’re frozen.
We’ll go back later in the week and get more. I’d like to end up with enough that we have at least one bag for each week, maybe six bags per month. We use them in cereal and salads, plus I love making blueberrie cakes, muffins and other yummy goodies throughout the year.
