Blueberry Picking

January 18, 2015

I can highly recommend a family outing to go blueberry picking. It's great for all ages.

As Andrew and I picked the kids joined in as well but somehow their bucket never got many in it. Samuel was quick to master his newly developed skill of picking straight from the bush and became familiar with the difference between blue and green instantly! Best of all the kids were safely contained by the bird netting that we were picking underneath. It was a worry free and relaxed family adventure.

We went to visit Jo from Blueberry Art on his organic blueberry farm in Levin. PYO berries for $10/kg or pop into the shop to buy them fresh or frozen for a little more. They are superbly delicious and very tasty. Well worth the drive from Wellington. Take a chilly bin along to bring them home in of you have one and don't forget your sun hat, sunblock and water. It's much hotter in Levin than it is in Wellington!

Into the bucket? Or into my mouth?
