Thankfully it was overcast with a breeze here and there while we picked blueberries. It was still hot! Blueberries are meant to be picked in the heat so it was a perfect day for picking. We didn't completely understand the directions to the best berries so we spent a lot of time picking and barely filling out buckets.
Anna picked by the handful. She also picked out her outfit today.
When Jeremy and Chrissy saw people leaving with multiple buckets of big berries, Jeremy went scouting and it wasn't long until we took the hike over the ditch to huge, sweet berries that filled out buckets really fast.
Here I am teaching Anna to pick one at a time. She did good for a moment--she counted each berry as she dropped it in her bucket--one, two, three, four. And then it was back to handfuls. I tried!
We ended up with about 11 pounds of berries. I determined to make one unhealthy blueberry recipe before freezing the rest of smoothies and snacks. Josiah loves frozen blueberries! (The unhealthy recipe is blueberry crumb bars. They are really yummy. I'll be buying vanilla ice cream tomorrow to make them even yummier!!)
