Blueberry picking… take one.

Posted on: June 5, 2016

On Memorial Day weekend, we attempted to go blueberry picking.

We had visited this berry farm two years ago and had a blast.  We knew that we wanted to take the girls berry picking again once K was old enough.

The weather had been cloudy for the past week or so.  Hubby said that one of the ladies at the entrance said that the clouds had possibly affected the rate at which the berries were ripening and that we might not be able to pick as much berries as we were be expecting.

She was right.  We walked through rows and rows of berries that were not yet ready for picking.

I didn’t stop us from having a good time though.  The mere fact that we were there was enough to make M and K very happy.

This was K’s first time at the berry farm.  She loved carrying around the bucket.  However, searching for ripe berries wasn’t quite as fun as filling up her bucket full of sticks!

Asides from berries, the girls loved looking at the chicken coop.  There were quite a few chickens inside and they were so cute!

In the end, we didn’t find enough berries to justify a purchase.  Good thing this blueberry farm doesn’t have an entrance fee.  You only pay for what you pick.  In our case, we hardly picked any!  We ended up leaving the bucket of berries on a bale of hay, hoping someone will find it and add it to their stash of berries.

Can you tell which one was K’s bucket and which one was M’s?

We’re hoping to make our way up to the berry farm again in the next week or so.  I’m hoping we can come back soon enough to collect a bucket full!
