A picture of all of the blueberries we picked and the “day old produce” they were selling at $0.50/lb. We picked ~15 lbs of blueberries!
We took the kids out to Mt. Olympus Farm yesterday to go blueberry picking. We have enjoyed apple picking and strawberry picking at other farms. I didn’t find that either of those outside of being a fun family day was really a huge cost savings (the per pound prices were almost the same as the grocery store). This was our first time blueberry picking and it was not only a fun family afternoon, it was almost half the price to pick my own as it was to buy them in the store! The blueberries were $2.50/lb at Mt. Olympus(compared to $2 for 8oz at most stores this week) and I “liked” them on facebook for a code that gave me 15% off. We realized when we got everyone out to the blueberry patch that we left the camera in the car. Sorry, I don’t have any pictures of dirty blueberry stained faces. Thank goodness they don’t weigh us before and after to see how many blueberries we ate while picking!
My next project – freezing most of the blueberries so that we can enjoy them all year long!
