Hope everyone had a F A B 4th … we seriously enjoyed the low humidity and the gorgeous sunshine over the weekend. Even took a field trip to Gainer Farms, a local blueberry farm in Chipley, to hand pick some fresh berries. Would highly recommend doing this when given the opportunity. It was such a fun experience.

he's the "sample" king
At Gainer, there are 3 types of blueberries. Climax was our favorite, had an interesting hint of peach flavor. Brightwells were a close runner up. Probably took us 40 minutes to pick 4 gallons, and did I mention it's only $8 per gallon. DEAL of the week! ! ! !
Oh, and one perk to hand picking … you get to sample the goods while you pick. Y U M M M M M M !

So much fun! We will most definitely return next year. The owners were super nice and real down to earth. The property was amazing, complete with rolling hills and ginormous shade trees. The blueberry season in NW Florida runs from Memorial Day thru Independence Day. In the meantime, we have 4 gallons of berries to E A T.
Does anyone have a few good recipes they'd like to share? ? ? :)
