Blueberry picking in Michigan
Post by melissa fenlon

blueberry picking in michigan on aliceandlois.comWe spent a cloudy morning picking blueberries near our parents’ home in Michigan this week. They are fortunate to live in the state’s blueberry belt. These berries are rich in antioxidants, a real super food. Our mom freezes them pounds at a time and incorporates them into her breakfast every day. Picking blueberries is perfect for kids. The small berries are easy to pick with little hands and just within their reach. We picked bucket’s full of blueberries at Fritz’s Blueberries at Brookside Farms in Paw Paw, Michigan. –all photos by Sara and Melissa
