Barefoot by the Sea: Blueberries!

Blueberries!

With time flying these days, we finally got over to our local farm to pick our blueberries!  It was a beautiful, sunny, warm day here and it honestly was one of our favorite days of the Summer.  There is just something about being on a farm, in the middle of the day, when it's quiet and we are simply chatting with one another about everything:  school, vacations, Summer, friends and of course, BERRIES! 
The girls and I picked quite a few for a couple of hours.  We have been enjoying them all week long.  They are so tasty this year!  Perfect for a snack, in cereal, yogurt or of course in our beloved smoothies!  Of course, no blueberry adventure would be complete without baking a big 'ol batch of our favorite muffins!  We've tried so many recipes over the past couple of years, they are all yummy!  Here are a few of our favorites:
We also managed to pick raspberries before they were past but we almost missed them!  Up next, hoping to get over before school starts to pick peaches and plums, followed by our September apple picking adventures!  Have you done picking or growing berries this Summer?  Please leave a comment and/or a link to your best BERRY recipes so I can check it out!

  1. Mmmmmmm..... Blueberries! We have a vendor in town that is selling blueberries, and I absolutely have to get there and get some before it's to late!
    You have local peaches? You are so lucky! If we have any peach farms/trees around here, I haven't heard of them yet. Maybe I should look into that!
