Blueberry picking

Yes, I opted to wear the ridiculous hat they provided to help keep the gnats away. 

Amazing views!

We took this picture on our way out of the farm-just beautiful!

Today we visited Frog Eye Farm to pick blueberries. It turned out to be a great idea to visit the farm in the morning because it was nice and cool outside and it wasn't crowded at all.  Driving into the farm, Pat and I immediately fell in love because of the beautiful views and the laid back attitude of the owners. We were also pleased that they do not use any chemicals or pesticides and follow natural farming practices.  They even encourage you to taste the blueberries which we thought was pretty neat because most places do not want you to try the blueberries without paying for them first. 

We ended up picking 2.5  lbs. of blueberries. Sophia tried to eat her weight in blueberries in the car ride home. I found a great recipe online from the 100 days of real food website and made delicious blueberry muffins. I may or may not have eaten three blueberry muffins. ;)
