Berry Disappointing

Each year, we make a trip out to a great pick-your-own blueberry farm.  While plenty of berries were produced this year, it seems everyone and their brother has decided to visit, so the place has been packed early in the morning and picked clean every Saturday.   Sometimes there are berries left Sunday morning, so we were hopeful that if we went on a Saturday evening, we could beat the crowds and find some berries.

It was not meant to be.  We only ended up with 5 pounds, which was about a third of what we wanted and not worth the drive.  The kids had a lot of fun this year though and I wish we'd weighed Secora on arrival and departure because I'm pretty sure she ate a pound or two while we were in the field (they encourage that). I don't think a single berry she picked made it into the bucket.  I really hope next year is better picking or they open up on a weekday, we just can't make it early enough to beat the crowds that come out on the weekend.

Must. Reach. Blueberry.
