Blueberry Picking

July 8, 2010

Blueberries! It’s that time of year again, the blueberries are ripe for the picking at Rocky Point Blueberry Farm in Warwick, Rhode island. Visit them online at www.rockypointblueberries.com

Fresh blueberries are super affordable when you pick them yourself - and fun. Three full buckets for $15.00. We picked up a frequent-picker card, hopefully we’ll be back a few more times, despite the weather. Our lofty goal is to pick enough to get us through the winter - freezing them in little bags. Not so sure if we can make it past the end of summer. Last year we thought we picked enough, but barely made it to the end of summer. I’m skeptical of our plan again this year, since the blueberries we picked are already gone! How can four people eat three buckets of blueberries in less than a week? Yeah, it’s possible…

At the end of our picking afternoon, Faye discovered a robin’s nest, with three beautiful, tiny blue eggs. Our daughter seems to have “nature-radar”, if there’s something interesting in the animal or plant kingdom to see, she’s right on it. The nest was in a blueberry bush, so it was just a few feet off the ground. The entire blueberry patch is covered with netting to keep the birds out, so this little robin obviously has a secret entrance.

  2. We do the same thing every summer. Pick lots of blueberries from Rocky Point Blueberry Farm and freeze them only to discover they’re gone by October. They’re just soo good! How amazingly cool to find a beautiful robin’s nest tucked in a bush.
    I came to your site looking for a school days album. My son stated kindergarten this year and I would love to have a beautiful book to place his school photos and report cards and record school facts like his teacher’s name, classmates etc. Have you ever considered offering a book like this for sale?
