I went to my mom's today to pick blueberries at a farm near her house. It was lots of fun! My kids love picking berries and I love for my kids to see where foods come from and how they grow and how they are harvested. We have blueberry bushes in our yard but they are still small and the birds always beat us to the berries.
Leo with the loot!
My grandmother is 96 so she didn't tramp along the bushes with us but she watched from the porch and enjoyed the view. My grandmother and I are very much alike and we both love to be busy!
My mom and daughter make a great berry picking pair. My mother insisted that I need twice as many berries as I thought was enough. "That's enough," I said to which she replied calmly and as if in agreement, "Yes. That's not enough at all."
