Blueberry picking!

Wednesday morning I'm off for some blueberry picking at Berrybogg Farm in Strafford, NH. Supposedly the crop has held up through the rain and the bushes are in need of picking. I hope to pick at least 10 lbs. Anyone else go blueberry picking this season? I've already been once to Locke's Blueberry Farm in Barnstead, NH. I picked 7 lbs when I was there. My two kiddos love blueberries though, so I need many more pounds to sustain them through the winter (and all the yummy blueberry recipes I'm finding)!

So I'll update everyone Wednesday afternoon with how picking went and how many pounds I picked. I am also planning on stopping at the Dover Farmer's Market (open from 2 pm - 6 pm). If anyone is interested the Dover, Exeter and Portsmouth farmer's markets will be having canning demonstrations. I want to pick up one of the fact sheets that discusses how to store all the vegetables and produce. Someday I may get into canning or at least freezing my produce for the winter months.

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week!
