Summer Blueberry Picking

Just like last year me and Zara headed out to Durham, Quebec to pick blueberries together and try and consume as much antioxidants as we could handle. We ended up going to the same farm as last year too, the only difference is this year we headed out at the end July instead of mid-August and it made the world of difference. Not only did we get to pick some raspberries (we arrived too late to pick from the good field sadly but we did pick some!) but we also got to pick over 9 varieties of blueberries. We didn’t really like many of the variations that much, but we at least learned the yummiest blueberry variety – Nelson! There is not much else to say as all we did was be silly, talk about inappropriate things and pick blueberries and raspberries for a few hours and then headed home. I did end up taking a lot of glamour shots of blueberries sand some instant shots that I’ve already shared (here). Our U-Pick day…
