Last fall, I took the kids raspberry picking. They had such a blast, we went apple picking a few weeks later. Since they continued to talk about it all winter long, we have been waiting in the wings for mother nature to bring forth more pick-your-own crops. Strawberries were in season a few weeks ago, so we all squished our way through the rain-soaked strawberry fields. Yesterday was prime blueberry picking season, so off we went to the farm once again. The blueberries were huge, and the ones allowed to reach full ripeness on the bush are amazingly sweet.
This morning we had blueberry pancakes for breakfast, Emma & Kathy baked banana blueberry bread, and the rest of the harvest was packed into a fabulous blueberry pie! Blackberries are right around the corner… we’ll be there!
