Blueberry Pickin'

So finally, after three years of wanting to, we went to a u-pick blueberry farm on Saturday morning. We had so much fun. The farm was only about fifteen minutes away on the way to Live Oak. I love when you get to the sign on the road, it says "follow the yellow dirt road". They don't spray so we were able to eat them right off the bushes. Yum! Mr. Orangutan Arms was able to get them off the very tops of the bushes where they were the absolute best. The sun makes them so sweet. We left with nearly five pounds of blueberries for $4. It's only a dollar a pound and kids 12 and under pick free. We also left with a bunch of mosquito bites and probably weighing five pounds less considering how much we were sweating. But it was well worth it. The three of them will especially think it was worth it when I make them a blueberry cheesecake!
