One of the best things about living in this part of the country is the abundance of U-Pick farms. I am still learning where they all are and didn’t take full advantage of them this year, but I plan to do more in the future. The kids and I took my mom who is visiting us for two weeks from the Last Frontier to a U-Pick blueberry farm. I set Mom and all the kids up with buckets and put them to work. Ben worked the entire time we were there and picked one whole bucket that weighed in at over 6 lbs. (He transferred berries from the hat to his bucket)
Dan worked hard too.
Hannah, surrounded by blueberries.
Jacob helped too, although it took him a while to learn that only the ripe berries taste good.
Below, our bounty (totaling 24.5 lbs!) I dehydrated a batch for my homemade granola cereal and froze the rest.
