Earth Day Festival of blueberries at U-PICK farm
Not ready yet
Gorgeous and delicious
Quarter for scale
This has been a wonderful strawberry season!
All those delicious berries!
5-6 pounds a week since January!!
(And local honey!)
A common question is what do I make with all the berries?
The answer is nothing! Most of the time I just eat them like candy straight out of the fridge!
A handful here, a handful there. Sometimes I put a dab of peanut butter on them.
First U-PICK blueberries of the season!
U-Pick blueberry farm.
20 varieties of blueberries.
I travelled 2 hours for these wonderful,
very sweet scintilla blueberries.
They are so worth it!
Not many farms have the scintilla variety due to its low yield.
Rows and rows of springhigh blueberry bushes
This springhigh blueberry is not quite ready yet!
The gorgeous springhigh variety is a medium sized,
soft skinned berry with a unique sweet flavor.
The best part is that there
is never an 'all you can eat' fee!
Nothing tastes like fresh picked berries!
(Each bucket holds 6 pounds of berries!)
We picked ten different varieties of blueberries
