Blueberry Picking

Last week Sheri and I and our friend Jean were able to sneak away for a bit and head to the pick-your-own berry patches at a farm in Edinburg, VA. The bushes were full of fruit and I really enjoyed being in nature and playing “two for the bucket, and one for me.” Here are some pictures from the day.

What are you doing with berries right now in your neck of the woods?

About Brie Aronson

Brie Aronson came to Polyface from southern California. During college, she was diagnosed with food allergies and had to begin asking about the source of every single thing she put in her mouth. This led to an interest in all things food and she sought out a way to learn how it can be produced ethically and sustainably. Her desire is to help people shift their focus from counting calories, being intimidated by their kitchens, and being disconnected from the land to one that experiences the life-giving enjoyment of food. Having completed the internship in summer 2010, she now assists with the buying clubs and sales building, leads school tours of the farm, and will be the summer 2012 farm cook.

  4. We’re into raspberry season around here, blueberries will be coming ripe any minute, I’m sure. Raspberries are one of those eat them as soon as you pick them berries, and that’s what we do – with cream for breakfast, by handfuls for snacks, and with ice cream at dinner. If we get sick of them (happens only occasionally), I will buy a flat and make some raspberry jelly, since no one likes the seeds in the jam.
