Growing up we always to took a day trip to go berry picking, blueberries were my favorite. Picking those little berries off the bushes and getting lost in blueberries.
Since becoming a mom, this was our first year blueberry picking with our son. We were so excited to get out to a blueberry farm . I forgot how long it takes to fill up a basket with those little berries. I think we ate more than we picked.
We ended up with 2 big baskets and a busy afternoon preserving our blueberries and stocking up the freezer for baked goods and smoothies.
