Blueberry Picking 2014

Because we had gotten home a few days earlier than planned, I thought it might be a fun way to get our minds off of things for a little while and decided we needed to do our early blueberry picking. Every year we head to the Blueberry Ranch, an organic blueberry farm not too far from our house. Some years you can just walk to the picking bushes, but some years (like this one) you get to ride a wagon out to the bushes. We had a wonderful time, and picked about 11lbs. this year, that is actually fewer than normal because we still had blueberries in the freezer from last year.

This year I finally tried my hand at a blueberry pie. This one was super easy and I found the recipe here. I do have to admit though that I didn't make the crust from scratch. I have yet to find one that really works well for me, so this is a store bought crust, but from scratch filling. 
 The last 2 years now I have also made this Sour Cream Blueberry Ice Cream and Easy Blueberry jam. I love how they both turn out, and the entire family loves eating it!
We really love doing this! Just check out past years!!!
