It was a perfect day to venture out blueberry picking and the blueberry bushes were heavy with berries at Spring Valley Farm in Cecil County. The berries are $2.65 a pound. We managed to pick 11 lbs in no time with the three little ones ‘helping.’ Little J was an expert picker whereas we had to guard our bowls from little E’s sticky fingers.
The farm also has ripe yellow and white peaches. After picking I made healthy blueberry muffins for snacks later this week and a fresh open face blueberry pie. My favorite!
I will likely freeze the remaining berries and make some jam. I’ll probably need to pick one more time to have enough to last us through the winter.
