This past week I heard that the blueberries were ripe at our favorite local farm. If you live in the Western Arkansas/Eastern Oklahoma area, you should really check it out! We always have so much fun there. And even though it is ridiculously hot here, we were having visions of blueberry muffins, blueberry pies, blueberry pancakes.... You get the idea. So we headed over to pick us some berries!
The bushes are really big and they were loaded with berries: both ripe ones and some yet to ripen.
The kids started out really excited, but the heat took over before long and soon they were hiding in the shade at the bottom of the bushes. So I just made them pick the ones down there:)
Aren't they gorgeous?! They were a really good size and so yummy!!
Yes, that is the face of someone sneaking blueberries:)
We ended up with 2 buckets full, which made one flat, which made two full gallon-sized bags for the freezer. Yum!
We've already been enjoying our favorite muffins. Next up, our favorite pie!!
I'm already planning a second trip for more berries:)
