Monday = Blueberry picking!

I decided to try picking blueberries down here this morning. I went over to Bellieview at Abshier Blueberry Farm and boy what a nice morning I had picking lots of ripe blueberries. 4.5 pounds later (Under $16!) I have two full half sheet pans in the freezer and two containers of berries in the fridge for snacking on. I'll transfer the berries into quart ziplock bags for the freezer once they are individually frozen. The kids have a  half day of school on Wednesday..... I think I might take them to pick some blueberries if it is not too hot =) I see lots of blueberry muffins and bread all year long!

  3. That sounds like fun. I haven't been anywhere where I could pick blueberries in years. Enjoy a few fresh handfuls and a baked something for me!

  5. Fresh blueberries are the best! I tried growing them once but my dog ate all the fruit off the bushes. I blamed the poor birdies until I discovered her purple stained tongue.

  7. I love blueberries. Our neighbors planted several bushes when they moved in 5-6 years ago, but they had to pull them out last week as they didn't do well at all. I had visions of being gifted with plenty of fresh blueberries. :-(
