blueberry picking

 

Every summer my mother-in-law goes blueberry picking and comes home with enough blueberries to feed most of the Northshore. She eats some, freezes some, and gives them to friends. Blueberry season has just started here in south Louisiana so it’s a great time to go picking. Kids love this activity too so don’t be afraid to bring them along. Note: many farms only take cash so be prepared!
