We had to get up really early today and Mom and Dad were hush hush about where we were going. We drove a little over an hour to the middle of nowhere cornfield land. We arrived at a u-pick fruit farm. We were all extremely excited to pick. We got our instructions and buckets and were out to pick raspberries first.
They were all so ripe and juicy! YUM YUM! I love raspberries.
Soon we were professional pickers.
Our bucket filled quickly with 4 people picking. It was a LOT of raspberries.
Up next were blueberries.
Unlike the Florida blueberry plants these were packed full of yummy looking berries. You barely had to touch the plant and they fell off in your hand.
We opted for a larger bucket for blueberries.
Now that is a LOT of blueberries.
Finally, APPLES. We picked a bag of Paula Red apples. They are so sweet and tiny.
Boy are they delicious. I ate three before we even got out of the parking lot.
So 20lbs of apples, the large bucket of blueberries and the medium raspberry bucket we came to a total of $32 Canadian! That is roughly $25 US.
They also sold cider and honey.
We have plans for yummy cobblers, pancakes, fresh fruit with homemade whip cream and more.
