Summer Blueberry Picking 2012

Summer Blueberry Picking 2012

We’ve made now a family tradition for four years to pick blueberries during the summer under the hot Texas sun. The blueberry farm – Blueberry Hill Farm is only open two months for the whole year & that’s during summertime – June & July. We usually pick during the last weeks of June to have the best picking time. The farm owner has weekly picking rates on what’s the best time to pick the blueberries.

This year we were fortunate to pick on the best time – the weather was just perfect in 60’s that early morning,overcast & the blueberries had even have dew from the rain the day before.

Texas blueberries are medium in sizes & have this distinct sweet taste. Crunchy on the outside but very sweet in the inside. Its bush can reach as high as 7 feet in height.

Besides fresh blueberries & blackberries, Blueberry Hill Farm also offers freshly baked from the farm store some blueberry cream pies – their all-time best seller, homemade blueberry ice cream – best ever, jams, preserves, marinates & pickles.

My girls are always looking forward every year to picking & taste their scrumptious pies & ice cream.Every year is always a treat not only for them but definitely for us too!
