Blueberry Season

Last weekend we ventured to Dexter Blueberry Farm (http://dexterblueberry.com/default.aspx) to pick blueberries. This is our third year picking our own blueberries and I have to say it one of the best parts about summer. The blueberries this year are $1.60/lb., which when you think about it is incredibly cheap. Last Saturday we picked about 10 lbs and is only cost $16. We froze 5-Quart-sized freezer bags worth of blueberries that we will now use throughout the Fall/Winter.

Here are some pictures from our venture to Dexter Blueberry Farm:

Live each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each. ~Henry David Thoreau
