|Our berry bounty, we had 6 pickers and about 2 hours. The round tubs on the left are gallon tubs.|
We went blueberry picking over the weekend. It was a gorgeous, sunny day. We met some friends, went for a 4-wheeler ride, and then picked blueberries, I came home with a gallon. So the end of the story is a success, but the beginning is a major fail on my part.
First, I knew we had to leave at 9:00 to meet our friends at 10:00. I had it all planned, lunches made, only had to change my shoes once and was in the car at 8:49! Dave had been very grumpy all morning so I proudly announced, "See, I'm 10 minutes early."
"Early? You are 20 minutes late. You knew we needed to leave at 8:30, you saw the text from Kathy."
I had kind of seen the text, I saw it was about the trip and I just handed my phone to Dave. I didn't know we had to leave at 8:30. And, we had to stop to gas up. FAIL
Also, I went to use my camera two days before and the battery was dead. I couldn't find the charger right away, so I figured I would find it later. At 8:45 the morning of the trip was when I looked for it. Couldn't find it, so no camera for the trip. FAIL #2
|My perfect picking spot.|
But, we made it in plenty of time, were not even the last ones to arrive and get unloaded. Kathy had a camera (although my plan was to have pictures of everyone else, not me), it was a very fun day with friends and I got berries.
