I was so excited! Contemplating the morning after hearing; "Let's go pick blueberries. I had to put on special socks to celebrate the occasion. Don't laugh, they're quite comfortable and very much ME. . . We went to Voytko's U-PICK Farm just a mile down the road from us. I went last year; the weather wasn't kind to the blueberry season at all. As a matter of fact, it wasn't kind to the bees either, for there was a shortage of honey -- this wasn't good at all concidering how much we love blueberries and honey. Dogs encluded.
This was my second time going to Voytko's "U - PICK" farm. You pay a little but the rewards are wonderful I love it. I don't know why I hadn't been there more often, though I'm sure it was some stupid reason.
This year I decided to take my camera, in hopes to get some great pictures. I'm so glad I did. I took so many it was hard to choose which pictures I wanted to post. I still ended up posting more than needed but I truly wanted to share our wonderful day. Even though the idea of picking was wonderful, the best part of the day was going with my husband Jim.

"Pickens weren't slim this year!" As you can see the berries were plump and "delicious". You could say I love them. . . We picked a total of 19 pounds with still tons more to ripen as you can see in the top photo, YUM. Sophie wanted some too, the dogs actually love them.
If you live in a area that has U - Pick farms that you can enjoy the day out picking, do yourself a favor and take advantage of it, you'll be so happy you did. And, what do you do with 19 pounds of blueberries . . . ENJOY THEM . . . maybe I'll post some blueberry recipes as long as we don't eat them first. V
