Ever since we moved to our new town (one year ago!), we have been hearing about this awesome blueberry farm that opens up once a year for free blueberry picking. I've been waiting, and scheming, about all the things I could do with pounds and pounds of free blueberries. I've been turning up my nose to blueberries "on sale"...waiting for my free ones.
Well, the time is right, and the farm opened this week! Yesterday we went twice in one day. We picked for hours!
Squishy ate his fill of the sweet berries. He was a boy on a mission. All dirty diapers since then can attest to this.
The one casualty of the evening: I was stung by some sort of wasp/bee thing and now my right hand is quite swollen. Not sure what's safe to put on it during pregnancy...but I have my 1st appointment today, so I'll ask my midwife. :)

But it was worth it, friends. The amount of blueberries in our house is unreal. The picture can't really do it justice. The bucket was filled with 2 gallons of berries and each grocery bag was bulging with them!!!
Of course I'm going to make blueberry jam (but I might freeze the berries and wait until my morning sickness passes). And blueberry cobbler, blueberry pie, blueberry muffins, and blueberry zucchini bread. And frozen blueberries for smoothies. Any other suggestions?
