11 lbs. of Blueberries. Yes, that's how I spent my 4th of July.I decided to go home to Cincinnati for one reason alone, blueberry picking with my mom at Rousters. They're only open for u-pick for 4 hours one day a year, and that was July 5th from 8-12. I had no idea how cut throat u-pick was. I thought my mom was crazy, telling me we'd need to leave the house by 7am, getting there at 7:30 to get in line. Really, mom, a line?! Well... it was maddness. The morning was gorgeous, the bushes were full and the berries were giant, sweet, and plentiful. I ate 3 berries while picking, and picked around 11 pounds. Mom picked 10 or so, but ate 3 I'm sure, so we ended up with 18.12 lbs. together.
I can't wait to make some delicious blueberry treats this week, including pie, dressing, and many other greats. Any ideas??? Leave me some comments :)
