This week, we went blueberry picking. It is one of my favorite things to do when summer arrives. There is nothing like paying $1.60 a pound for blueberries that taste so much better than what I normally find in the grocery store. The satisfaction of having collected them myself doesn’t hurt anything, either.
We always go with friends, so good conversation makes it fun and seem less like work. And regardless of how many other children are in the running, I always leave with the dirtiest two. 😉
If you’re in northern Louisiana, I highly recommend Blueberry Hill in Haughton. We spent two hours, paid $8, and came home with enough blueberries and blackberries to last us several months, along with the four jalapenos my boy stumbled upon and picked.
