Yep, after our visit to Wintergreen Tree Farm on Tuesday, Sally and I headed back to Mantua today. Once we checked in, we headed to almost the last row of bushes. Then, we headed to the back of the row. At times, it was hard to get through the aisle. I knew if we kept going, the picking was going to be great. The berries did not let us down. Even though Sally can walk on her own, I don’t know if I can go blueberry picking without a stroller. It’s nice to have a place for all of our stuff.
Sally has been really enjoying my attention since Nick’s been at camp this week. I kept catching her eating blueberries out of the big bucket. My response was usually for her to pick her own if she was hungry.
Back at the shed, Hannah checked us out. We picked almost 9 pounds! I didn’t get a photo of our crop, but our buckets was just a couple of inches from the top. Again, I put them in containers and they went straight to our freezer.
I talk to Hannah about the crop. She guesses that there’s about 2 weeks of picking left. I’m hoping to take my niece and nephew when they come to town. It’s going to be tight. My niece really wants to go blueberry picking.
Sally posed with Hannah. It was a great day for picking!
