Nick, Sally and I have picked 9 times so far. We’ve visited 8 different farms. Wintergreen Tree Farm is the first farm that we have repeated this summer. We love blueberries and had an awesome plentiful picking experience on Tuesday, so we returned today.
Here are my favorite photos from today. Nick and Sally are all ready to pick with their buckets (which are really temporary holding locations for a few berries that they eat). The enthusiasm of picking wore off quickly and we made good use of our blanket once again. They get lots of fresh air and I get serenaded while I pick berries.
Here’s Sally and Nick with the attendant Julie. She already knows the kids. Nick was concentrating on holding the bucket of berries and therefore was not looking at the camera. 7 pounds is heavy for a 3 year old.
We ended up picking 7.3 pounds of blueberries for $10.91. They are $1.50 a pound.
