A few weeks ago my good friend Pauline, her son and I all headed out to pick some blueberries! This was my first time out to a U-pick farm aside from pumpkin patches. The blueberry field set out by itself next to some open fields where a horse show was going on. (You can see a horse there at the end of the row of blueberries!)
The blueberry picking season was drawing to a close when we were out but there were plenty of good berries left to pick. The weather was beautiful summer Seattle weather. Sunny, warm, with a gentle breeze!
Adrian needed a little help to remember to pick the "blue" blueberries. Most blueberries ended in his mouth instead in the crate and occasionally rocks and sticks took their places. Poor mama, a few of her blueberries got pretty squashed!
After checking our loot we went back to the car and to grab our picnic lunch. The horse show made a perfect picnic spot!
There were tables right up next to the arena and we cheered for the horses and their riders as they leaped over the fences. It was a beautiful day! My blueberries have been a handy snack for a long car ride to California, blueberry scones (I need to share that recipe with you), and lots of wonderful smoothies for breakfast.
Number 8 off the list!
