Picking Blueberries

Monday, June 18, 2012

Chad & I spent the weekend with family in Toledo Bend. Such a beautiful lake, but before we made the 5hr drive we stopped by one of our local farms to pick blueberries. There are several farms here on the Louisiana North Shore where you can pick sweet blueberries straight from the bush. No pesticides, and no big price tag. We walked away with this gallon bag for just $8. 
Our nieces, nephews .. and puppy .. devoured this bag, so we're heading back out to pick more this weekend. We're still sitting at the half-way mark with our kitchen remodel, so one of the first things I'll be making once that oven goes back in is this made from scratch blueberry pie.

Blueberry Season here in South Louisiana is late May through mid July. For a listing of all 'pick your own' farms, click here.
