Last Saturday evening we ventured to the Red Bank area of Lexington to visit the Berry Hill Farm. We just learned about the blueberry patch last year and have been waiting patiently for it to open this year.

Everybody grabbed a bucket and set foot through the blueberry patch collecting as many ripe blueberries as possible.

Avery, of course, ate her fair share along the way!

Emma did a great job of selecting the nice ripe blue ones.

Unlike picking apples or even strawberries, picking blueberries can be rather tedious since they are so small and it takes awhile to start filling up your bucket. And...that is not taking into account the 100 degree weather!

The kids were getting hot and tired, so we grabbed our buckets to walk back across the street to pay for our pickings.

We did pretty well. We picked over 5 pounds of blueberries all together and you just can't beat the price...at a dollar a pound we only spent a little over $5.00 for it all.

We have been eating fresh blueberries every night for dinner and I am trying to decide what I am going to make with the rest of them. Blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, blueberry pie, blueberry cake...I love fresh fruit!
