Alaska Blueberry Picking

This poor ol' neglected blog...will I ever revive it?!
Today My Girl and I went wild Alaskan blueberry picking with friends. It was a great success!
We have over 2 lbs. of blueberries in the freezer now!
Wild Alaskan blueberries are much smaller than others, but pack a ton of flavor. 2 lbs. is a pretty fair amount of blueberries for one afternoon! I've heard they contain more antioxidants than other blueberries, but cannot verify that as fact. One thing I do know as fact is they are SUPER yummy!
I got a nice little sunburn too! I haven't had a sunburn in so long! Ouch!
(I look quite tubby in this photo! phew! I need to sit up straight! 7 months pregnant and 20 pounds of extra weight is not ALWAYS flattering!!!)
We plan to go picking at least two more times this year! I can't wait to share wild Alaskan blueberry pancakes with my Mom who IS COMING HERE IN 8 WEEKS!!!! We booked her tickets to come see us and help us out with baby boy when he comes! She is STAYING 6 WEEKS! Can you tell I am EXCITED! By the time she gets here, it will have been 2 years since I last saw her and got to hug her!!!

Here's a link to last year's berry picking adventure: Last Year


  1. I love it when a new post from you appears in my google reader !! I know it will be a good one ! :) They always are !! Those blueberries look delicious !! And you look so cute !! That sunburn on the other hand .... ouch !!

  2. ouch! you should put some aloe on that! :(
    i'm jealous of your blueberries! we planted a couple bushes but i don't think they're going to make it. :(
    i'm sure your mom will appreciate them too... although i'm guessing she is pretty excited to just see you guys too! :)

  3. We had blueberry pancakes for dinner tonight. Yummy. My son works for our friend who owns a blueberry farm so I am blessed to not have to pick my own. But I still seem to find other ways to get burned. LOL!
    Fair skin sisters.
