Saturday Evening Blueberry Picking

It is our tradition to go blueberry picking first thing in the morning. However, this past Saturday, with the extreme heat our favorite farm decided that they'd open the blueberry fields from 8:00am-8:00pm. Never having gone blueberry picking in the evening (and figuring it would be cooler by then) we decided that we'd take advantage of the later picking times and go around 6:00pm. When we arrived it was cooler (as I had hoped) and there was only one other couple there picking. The night was gorgeous, the blueberries plentiful and the fields peaceful. It was absolutely perfect, and we were so happy that we waited to pick rather than going in the warmer morning. What a lovely way to end a summer Saturday! xo


  1. I think evening blueberry picking sounds wonderful!! It's been so hot here as well and I've been going out as little as possible during the day except when I have to or to take a dip in the pool. Ah, the dog days of summer. This is why you'll never hear me complain about it being too cold in the winter!!! : ) xoxo

    1. I am the same way (never complaining about winter)! I much prefer it and it's snuggly clothes over the hot days of summer! I like all the seasons but if truth be known summer is my least favorite!

      Evening blueberry picking was divine! I truly am so glad that we went then. It really was magical! xo
