Blueberry pickin'

Yesterday Jeff, Caroline and I went to pick blueberries at an organic blueberry farm in Clinton (about an hour north of Baton Rouge).  We made the trip with a woman I work with and her son and we all had a great time!  When we got there the owners said that there weren't many blueberries left because the peak of the season is in June, but for our small group, it was fine.  Caroline was great about picking out the bushes with lots of berries on the low branches and Jeff took care of the high branches.  It was a beautiful sunny day and we picked berries for about an hour, it got to be a little hot for all of us, so we went to check out the sheep and goats and chickens that were out on the farm as well.  With not a lot of effort, we ended up with right about 3 lbs of blueberries!  

We woke up this morning and decided to make some homemade blueberry muffins with our loot.  I rarely make muffins from scratch, but these turned out great, and I'm sure it had a lot to do with the fresh blueberries.  Here are some pictures from our adventure and from our morning baking (and of course Caroline was my assistant pastry chef).
