Blueberry picking (raspberries too)

Today we went blueberry picking. Look at these beasts!

Yeeee-ah. The basket was there.

I think blueberry picking is my favorite. No jaggy bushes. You don't have to crouch down (we did just for these photos - I don't know why) And when you get home there is no pitting or hulling. Just wash and eat.

Also, blueberries are practically a superfood. Blueberries are one of the most antioxidant rich foods. They are good for your heart, your brain, insulin production and they reduce the risk of cancer.

You can follow blueberries on Pinterest. Yes, that sounds odd but wow there are some amazing recipes on there! Blueberry pizza! Blueberry ketchup!! Blueberry barbeque sauce!!!

Oh and we picked raspberries too. Don't want to skip over that. G&S Orchards had a selection of raspberries... red, black, purple and yellow. The yellow are so sweet! There were currants and gooseberries too but we ran out of time.
