This week included a lovely trip down to Star, MS. We accompanied some friends on one of their last trips to their farm for blueberries, as the picking season here is winding down. Our friends eat an almost exclusively raw diet, and are so knowledgeable about nutrition and wholesome living. I loved getting to talk to and learn from them, while they graciously allowed us to take home a huge bucket full of delicious, homegrown blueberries.
On our drive to the farm, we encountered this rogue chicken who had somehow escaped from the rest of the clan. The truck was just barreling down the road and this poor thing was hanging on for dear life.
Once we got to the farm, we had a lovely morning filled with picking berries, eating more than we kept, and talking for hours. There is no better fellowship than that which takes place outside!
Here is my sweet mama scouting the low branches for some choice berries. There were three different varieties of blueberry bush there, and we just combined them all in a 3 gallon bucket that we almost filled!
Stay tuned for some blueberry inspired recipes over the next few weeks...
