Oh those yummy blueberries!
Yes, we went blueberry pickin' again. But thankfully it was not dreadfully hot like last year when we forced our small children into heat prostration for the love of a few buckets of blue gold!
This time we went Northwest of us and hit the Mt Hood area-known for it's beautiful orchards and fruit farms. It was a perfect day, not too hot and a beautiful, warm sun. Here's a view from the farm. (Montavons Berries - such a great family-run farm!) Don't you want to move there RIGHT NOW?
The season was delayed this year because of our cold Spring but that made for a fine and BRIEF afternoon of pickin' - we were the only ones there on this afternoon and we had fresh new bushes to pick through until we couldn't haul anymore.
The kids were much more active without the sweltering weather. Peelu was moving like lightning, trying to get all the blueberries she could...
We had such a fun time with the farmer as she hauled us around on her ATV trailer and even let us stop and pick an overlooked cherry tree and scrounge what we could from the raspberry bushes.
Then we told Peelu we had to go....
She was not happy......I think she thought she was going to stay there in fruit paradise and live among the bushes and trees. Actually, that sounds pretty good to me too.
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
