:: more blueberries, please ::

I think we’ve gone picking blueberries three times already.

This time we went up higher, because down here by Portland, they are almost all done.  So we went up to Sandy, towards Mt. Hood to a place we’ve gone before.

This man, planted I don’t know how many plants 60 years go, and has seen them grow all this time.

The plants are huge!  The field is filled with blueberry plants, some like a small tree, with thick branches.

Plants, filled with fruits.

We asked him how he kept the birds out of his field, because he doesn’t have any of those recordings to scare the birds from these fruits.  He said “Every morning I ask them to leave.”

We might have enough to get us through until the next season.  We don’t know.  We keep eating them in smoothies, and frozen as a snack.  They are just so good!

    We picked 30 lbs this year hoping to get us through to next season but we’ve eaten so many already I think we’ll be lucky to make it to December! Love them!
