Berry Fever

We have been busy little beavers in our house picking.....

Raspberries (actual picture of the ones we picked....yes i know your mouth is watering)

Patriot Blueberries

and we also picked strawberries...but I do not have a mouth watering up close picture for you. We made pie filling, jams, and froze the rest for smoothies, muffins and other uses. I recommend for all families to go find a local farm that specializes in berries. IT IS SO MUCH CHEAPER!

For example, I picked strawberries for .90 a pd. vs. Store 2.50 pd.

u-pick Blueberries/ 1.25 pd. vs Store 3.99 pd depending on season

and we picked Rasberries for 1.15 pd.

Berries are high in anti-oxidants, vitamins and low in fat and good for your health. So grab your boots, a pail and get picking! Whatever you do not eat, freeze and eat later :)
