My sister, BIL, SIL, and I drove up north to where Steph lives to pick blueberries yesterday! It was totally worth the very long drive and long day. The picking was great, the blueberries were beautiful, and the price was right. We paid $1.50/lb. for u-pick organic blueberries.
Aren't they beautiful?!
We picked for about 2 1/2 hours and in that time I was able to get nearly 25 lbs. My sister gave me a few more pounds so I ended up with 30 1/2 lbs. Most of that went straight into the freezer (Andrew helped me with that!) and some will be for eating and some will be for a fresh blueberry cobbler and some will be for blueberry scones! :) We grew up picking blueberries and for me it's a summer time must - I'm always disappointed if I don't get to go. It's hard work but the end result is something to be enjoyed for the rest of the year. I'll definitely be headed up that way next year for more blueberries!
A few of the many bags - we froze 3 cup and 6 cup bags.
Peach and raspberry seasons are next, so hopefully I will be adding both of those fruits to our freezer, too. I love summer!
