If you head east of Seattle this time of the year, you will find many places that have a U-Pick-Em blueberry program. They hand you a bucket and you make your way out onto the farm to pick your own blueberries. When you are finished, they weight the blueberries and then charge you around $1.50 a pound.
I love blueberries, so last week I headed East to get my bounty.
Marketman said he picked over 20 pounds of blueberries. I only got about 8 pounds and I had help. The night after picking blueberries, I had a dream where I kept picking more blueberries. If you have space in your freezer, seek out a blueberry farm and start picking.
My tip is to avoid the Mercer Slough Blueberry Farm. It is over picked at this point. If any of my fellow Seattle blueberry pickers are out there, post in the comments which farms you liked.
