We went blueberry picking for the first time and it was so fun!  Minus the fact that we had to go when Derek was working, he was pretty sad and we missed him tons AND it was our 9 year anniversary, so extra sad!  

We found the perfect local place, Little Hill Berry Farm.  They are certified organic, which is no easy feat, and are owned by the sweetest and friendliest couple!  I love their story.  Some of the blueberry farms we saw didn't like kids picking, but these guys encourage you to try their berries and are very family friendly.  The blueberries were absolutely the best blueberries I've ever eaten and they have seven different varieties!  Which got me wondering about the berries in the store, they're not labeled with what variety they are, so what are we eating?  Now I know what blueberries should taste like.  They're much more fun to pick than strawberries, just because you can get a whole bunch with one pick.  Also, the bushes are taller and being 36 weeks pregnant, this helped a ton!  We also went with some blueberry lovin friends and had such a great morning, it was beautiful out!

I cannot wait until next summer to really stock up on these awesome blueberries, they lasted about a week in our house.

So next year, I think we need to go and sample each variety. I am now curious which variety we have growing in our garden. We still have three more years until the roots will be established enough to let them fruit, so count me in next year and the year after, and the year after. Yum.
