Blueberries are probably one of the easiest fruits to pick. The bushes are tall enough where you don't have to bend down like strawberries, but not high enough where you have to reach up like the tree fruits (though apple trees don't tend to grow that tall, but orange ones do!). Blueberries come right off the branches, though. It's easy to tell which ones are ready to pick because of how easily they come off. Raspberries are just as easy, and those should be starting soon. I can't wait because those are one of my favorites, at least to eat. Apples will always be my favorite thing to pick just because of the season and festiveness that surrounds apple picking.
I decided to keep it simple and just wear a romper to go picking in. Sometimes you do have to get low to the ground and squat, and it's easier to do that in something where you know your butt won't be showing. Plus, the romper is blue to match the berries! I also wanted to wear this lip color again because I love how bright and vibrant it is. It's great for summer, and it ended up matching pretty well with the reddish flowers in the print of my romper.
It was hard to decide what to bake with the blueberries because I had a lot of blueberry recipes that sounded really good. I ended up deciding on a blueberry crisp since it's pretty simple and delicious. I love fruit crisps and I've really only ever had apple and raspberry, so I figured it was time to try blueberry.
I picked way too many strawberries last time, so I budgeted how many blueberries I picked this time. I ended up wishing I had picked more so that I had some leftover to either snack on or bake something else with. Crisp is good, but it doesn't last very long since it doesn't make a whole lot...or maybe I just like big portions.
