20 gallons of Blueberries

Each of these boxes contains ten gallons of blueberries that we picked one morning in the beginning of July. After we got them home, we washed and froze most of them. Now they sit in our freezer, waiting for winter when they'll remind of us this beautiful summer day.

Arrowhead Acres Blueberry Farm

As we were approaching the stand, we heard what must have been the loudest cow EVER. The farmer apologized for the cow's moaning-- her calf had just taken away from her that morning. We could not believe how loud and sad she was. 😦 Poor cow.

A perfectly blue sky, for picking perfectly delicious blue berries.

Here are some of the rows of bushes we tackled.

They were loaded with both ripe and not-yet-ripe berries.

About an hour into the morning, here's our progress.

My helpful assistant was a motivated worker since blueberries are his favorite.

I love the contrast between this orange truck and the blueberry sky.

Farm-fresh flowers added a nice touch to the blueberry stand.

These berries are sooooo good! And good for you too. 🙂

One of the fun things we’ve done this summer was visit a local blueberry patch.

Here’s some photos from a glorious morning spent enjoying the sights and sounds of the countryside in the Upstate of South Carolina.
