Mornings goodies...

My good friend and I went to a local orchard this morning to pick blueberries. The season is running two weeks early, so the bushes are slim pickings but I still managed to get close to 5lbs worth. I forgot my camera, but she snapped these with her phone.

My 4 yr old had a blast picking(and eating) the blueberries. And he was very diligent about only picking the ripe ones. At one point he told me that I could "go take a rest" because he had found a spot with so many that he could pick for the both of us.
We then got 2 bushels worth of apples, which will soon be turned into apple pie fillings and loaded into the freezer chest.

We hope to go back on Friday and pick more(there were still quite a few that needed ripening) and head over to another spot for raspberries.

Anyone have any good recipes for blueberry treats that can be frozen?

Have a great day,



  1. love the photos and can't wait to see what you whip up with them.;) yummo!!!

  2. Don't you just love fall? The teens just helped to peel apples from the front yard and the smell of applesauce simmering on the stove is wonderful.
    We have pints of blueberries in the freezer and simply take them out and toss them into pancakes, muffins, or cook them into a sauce as needed.
    We love this cobbler recipe at all recipes

  3. We have Blueberries in the freezer and I like the way I can just grab as many as I want to make muffins or Pancakes. If you go to my blog and look on my sidebar on the left for Mommys Kitchen go check her out..she has the best recipes ever :)

  4. Hi Tiff! How lucky to have blueberry fields so close by. I have to resort to buying them. I freeze them whole as use as needed just like a couple of others have already mentioned.

    I love your long basket filled with apples.
    Have a happy day!

  5. MMMM... Blueberry and Apple Pie

  6. Looks like a great time! I wish we could pick apples in Florida! We picked blueberries back in May or so.

  7. What a blessing! I would love to have a place like that around here, but it's not going to happen in the desert :-)
    We were on vacation, so I'm still catching up on reading, but I've always wanted to visit Old Sturbridge Village. Thanks for sharing all of the wonderful photos.
