Independence Day Blueberry pickin'

So, some friends of ours told us about this place in Marion where we could get Blueberries.

Since my dad was off today, we planned to go.

And, boy, was it worth the trip!

We got there around 10 and left just before 12. 

Even though you could get in the shade, it was still pretty hot. 

The enthusiasm was beginning to wane...

 And all for donations!

We were able to pick 4 1/2 gallons in 2 hours. 

And here is our July 4th dessert: a cream cheese/whipped cream pie topped with fresh Blueberries, Raspberries and Raspberry puree, in a shortbread crust.


  1. Mmmm blueberries Sunday?
