Everyone knows that I love fresh fruits and vegetables and getting to pick it yourself…it doesn’t get much better than that. Last year we ate all of our picked blueberries in the same weekend, so this year I was determined to stock up. We went to two different farms this year and my favorite was Church Lake Farms. The price was great, the owners were so nice, and at the end of the season they sent out an email blast to their visitors to BYBO, bring your own bag and pick as much as you can for free because they were getting ready to cut back the fields. I picked six pounds.
You might be asking what in the world do we do with all of those blueberries and I am proud to say “We eat them!” We eat them in pancakes, muffins, dessert bars, salads, homemade ice cream, snacks, by the handfuls, and even toss them into drinks. They go quickly. Below are some of the pictures taken from both farms. You’ll see that the kids had a great time…and we even came across a few visitors.
