Blueberry Picking

I found a U-Pick blueberry farm that has organic blueberries for $7.00/gallon and it's not too far away. They are DJ's U-Pick Blueberries. We had such a good time that we are going back tomorrow. Here are some pictures from our first visit.

They have a few goats too. Hope loved seeing the goats and she even got to feed one. She was so brave!

Hope has our bucket and we are ready to do some picking. Here she is putting more blueberries into our bucket. She was very good at picking the blueberries. Once she showed her which ones to pick, she was an ace!

Look at those cute little hands. She was so excited about it. Of course that only lasted a few minutes and then she wanted to just run around.

More blueberry picking for Hope.

Carrying our gallon bucket and looking for a new bush to pick at.

Me with our gallon of organic blueberries. Yum!!!

Once I got home, I gave them a good wash, but here they are right before. Now that's a lot of blueberries!
Hope did really well on her first trip to the blueberry farm. Of course, she got a little tired, and the owners kept telling us we could eat them off the bush. Unfortunately, once we showed Hope she could eat the blueberries off the bush, she stopped picking and putting in the bucket. She only picked and ate. :)
I will have to get some pictures up so you can see what all I have made with my blueberries.


  1. I had no idea that was there - looks like fun and we are definitely going to go sometime!

  2. Hi! I just found your blog and your little girl is too cute. I gave birth to my daughter in 2008 too. Blueberry picking is such a good idea to do with her. Thanks for the idea.

  3. We're going picking with MIL soon! $7/gal is a great price! Looks like fun. :)

  4. Oh, how fun! Hope is a speedy little one. I can can picture her running up and down the rows with her little bucket,and having little stained fingers afterwards.

    There were a lot of blueberry farms and apple orchards in the area where I up. My dad and I would go blueberry picking together every summer, just the two of us. It's one of my fondest childhood memories.
