Summer Excursion: Cherry and Blueberry Picking


“Mommy camp” has been in full swing this summer and last week, we went back to Tougas Family Farm for cherry and blueberry picking! It was our first time picking cherries and blueberries and we had a blast! The girls thought it was even more fun than strawberry picking because they didn’t have to bend all the way down and the fruit was more accessible.



We reached the farm first thing in the morning and  headed straight for the cherries! There’s something about seeing a tree filled with ripe, colorful fruit that brings me such joy.  We picked a variety of sweet and delicious burgundy berries. The farm attendant gave us a brief orientation about the variety of berries and the right way to pick them so we wouldn’t accidentally destroy next year’s crop. The girls followed the instructions and did a great job!







Next up, blueberries! These were super easy to pick and pretty much fell right in our hands. The blueberry bushes were also the perfect size for the girls to  easily reach for the fruit. As we were finishing up, the sun started to come out in full swing. We grabbed our berries and were ready to head out of the heat.










This time around, we unfortunately didn’t have enough time to feed the goats or enjoy the playground. Instead, we popped into the farm store and bought some donuts for the road and blueberry crumble to enjoy later for dessert.

It was yet another wonderful morning spent at the farm enjoying summer’s bounty!
