Our Family tradition of picking berries happened this week. Click to see my u-pick post from 2017.
We were blessed with the cooler weather which was welcome after the upper 90s-100 degree temperatures we’ve been having as of late. We almost didn’t make it because my oldest had been fighting a viral stomach thing that had her not feeling well for three days straight. She’s still getting back into the swing of things and we are praying for a full speedy recovery right now.
Today my family and I made a trip to a u-pick berry farm. The berry we were picking were Duke Blueberries. This type of blueberry is known to ripen early and usually had a very high yield. The colors were a deep dark-blue and the bushes of berries were quite full. We picked about 10lbs worth at $1.25lb. Not a bad deal at all and these far exceed the flavor of getting them from a grocery store. I tend to prefer to buy most of our groceries locally if we can help it.
