last weekend we headed up to the cabin and brought some friends with us. since it is blueberry season we thought it would be fun to go picking, something that my mother in law does every year. and somehow i convinced my friend kelly that we should go. little did we both know of how much work it is to pick these little blueberries! we started off our journey by getting up at 7:30 am, driving an hour into a secret blueberry picking location, and picked for several hours. you had to get really low to the ground to pick each berry one by one. but i have to say though we spent hours picking away at these berries, we had an amazing time and left with several quarts of blueberries. i think there is a reason why people don't tell you how hard/time consuming it is to pick wild blueberries. also the key in our positive blueberry experience was the hunter boots. these boots are the best, we were able to hike around and not get caught on weeds and all sorts of things because of these amazing boots. not like i needed another reason to love my hunter boots. but i really really do :)
after our long day of picking we ended on a positive note, though very exhausted! and now we have wild blueberries for days!
ps: thanks kell for sharing your pictures with me!
