This morning I met up with a few friends to check out a local “pick your own fruit” farm. It’s not too far from here, but I’ve never been there, I just didn’t trust myself to be able to drive there and back. Today, driving there and back was just fine.

We were able to pick blueberries and raspberries. There wasn’t much left of either berry, but it was fun searching for the blue/violet & hot pink berries.

Searching for ripe blueberries.
Finding "hot pink" raspberries & staying away from the bees.
Finding purple/violet blueberries was hard. A lot of them were still green.

We ended up staying for over two hours. We shopped for more fruits and veggies in the country store, then played on the little playground. Next year we’ll go earlier in the season to get some juicy and ripe berries.

  1. If you go later in the week there tend to be more too.  It was probably still picked over from the weekend. We only have apple and berry picking in MN, but it is really fun!

  2. Good point Darcie. THere were a lot of ripening blueberries, just not ready yet. We’ll go back soon, later in the week this time. TY
