blueberry picking

Friday morning started out overcast and slightly cooler than sweltering so we headed out to pick blueberries. Of course as soon as we got there, the sun came out and it got miserably hot but we powered through long enough to pick three pounds, no thanks to Jake! He probably ate about three pounds worth while Deric and I did most of the picking. Ok, Deric did most of the picking since his wingspan really came in handy to get all the blueberries at the very top of the bushes. I mostly followed Jake to make sure he wasn't eating the unripe berries or any off the ground but he was pretty good about only eating the blue ones. We asked Jake what he wanted to make with the blueberries and he requested muffins, so on Saturday morning we made blueberry oatmeal muffins for breakfast. I'm sure we'll be back to visit the blueberry patch every summer now that Jake is able to help pick berries, not that any of them actually make it home. ;)
