One of the best things about summer time are the blueberries. We don’t have apple trees or pumpkin patches or even public peach picking places (they’re all commercial). But we do have strawberries and blueberries. And we love to pick blueberries every summer. With eight kids, our blueberry picking takes approximately 30 minutes. That is for about 10 lbs of blueberries. We do two trips to ensure we have enough blueberries to last us through the year. I bet my kids wouldn’t mind being hired out as blueberry pickers…for a large fee. It’s hot out there ya’ll.
Anyway, the cost to pick at this local farm is phenomenal and well below what we would pay in a grocery store. That makes this mama’s heart even happier.
Emmie’s first year to actively participate. Translation: She probably ate more than she picked but she was so cute doing it no one would stop her.
Ceili Rain made sure Emmie grabbed the ripe ones. Bryant decided he needed some shade and donned Emmie’s pink hat. This girl can pick some berries ya’ll!
Absolutely one of the cutest pictures of the whole day. I love my girls.
