Saturday morning was a bit cloudy, but not rainy, so we went out for breakfast first and then headed for the u-pick farm. They were having a special since it is so close to the end of the season and many berries were overripe. Instead of $5 per quart, it was $30 if you picked ten quarts -- so, $3 per quart. We decided to see if we could get 10 quarts.
|There were nice mountain views in the distance. A lot of the bushes looked like this; we would just touch a clump of berries and there would be leaves and berries literally falling off.|
|Still, it was pretty easy picking.|
|Aren't they beautiful!?|
|As we worked, we reminisced about how much my mother loved picking blueberries. When she found a perfect looking clump like this one above, she would save it to adorn the full pail of blueberries.|
|A branch with all the berry colors!|
|View of some of the bushes and distant mountains. That is an electric fence to keep bears out!|
