Blueberry Picking

Charlotte in blueberry heaven
Charlotte and I just got back from picking blueberries with our friend Brandy.  What a wonderful start to the morning!  The other day a customer mentioned to Brandy that she found a great place to go blueberry picking right off of highway 99 just north of Corvallis.  Brandy had been wanting to go picking for awhile now this summer and I thought it sounded fun as well so as soon as we woke up this morning we were in the car and took a short drive down to Anderson Blues on Arboretum Rd.  We arrived just before it got too hot or too busy with people.  We both picked about 4 lbs. of berries while Charlotte scavenged the ground for her own share.  I'm going to have to find some delicious recipes for my berries.

So happy to be out of the car

Spartan Blueberries were the type we decided on.  They were large and sweet fruit.

4 lbs. of blueberries only cost $6!!!
