On Saturday morning, we drove to Beulah Berries a seven acre blueberry farm in Northwest Florida. After being briefed on the blueberry fields, we grabbed three yellow gallon buckets and headed off. Since it is early in the season only a few varieties of berries were ripe, but there were plenty to pick from.
We had so much fun! We quickly learned that to get the good berries, we had to really get into the blueberry bushes. I decided to dive right in.
Yup, I'm literally squatting under the 5 foot blueberry bush! I crawled around and hit the jackpot of ripe and plump blueberries!
After two hours, we picked 2.5 gallons. We'll be stocked up on blueberries for a very long time! If anyone has any blueberry recipes, please share.
Have you ever been fruit picking? I've only been apple, strawberry, and now blueberry picking. Let me know about your experiences in the comments!
