Blueberry Picking

Ella and I went blueberry picking with Christine and Dominic last weekend. The farm had both blackberries and blueberries to pick.

The blackberries were a little trickier because of the prickers, and a lot of them were still red instead of black, but I like blackberries more than blueberries so was determined we were going to get a decent haul of blackberries to take home with us.

The blueberries were very easy to pick, there were so many of them on each of the branches and you could easily pick a handful of them in just a few seconds. Ella and Dominic spent most of the time eating instead of putting them in the buckets. It was really hot out and we were there in the middle of the day, but the kids really did great and it was a really nice outing.

Ready to go!
