Feeling Blue?

It must be time to go to the Blueberry farm!

This local pick-your-own-berries farm has become an annual trip each January as we have gone to pick our own fruit in...




and 2009. (The year it rained...!)

The owners did a huge prune back of the bushes in 2010 and had no crop. The 2011 crop was small and was reserved for local restaurants and finally now in 2012/2013 there is a bumper crop available to the public once more. It was an overcast day in the high twenties. A welcome relief after the 43 degree day yesterday.

We picked just under 2kgs of fresh juicy berries and came home ready to get stuck into some blueberry muffin baking. The results of which will be on a future post if I can photograph them before they get scoffed!

  1. I'm looking at how small your daughters were in the earlier photos and you would think the first thought I would have is look how much they have grown. Nope, first thing that came to mind is "look how tan Sian's legs are!" :)

  2. All grown up! :)
