The young man said that these blueberries were freshly picked this morning. Who could refuse? When I first moved to Florida, I did not realize that blueberries were actually grown down here. I remember very well, going with my girlfriend, Carolyn, and her two daughters along with my two daughters, to pick blueberries when we lived in Michigan. I believe each of us (Carolyn and I were the only true pickers) picked 90 pounds and they cost about 35 cents a pound. Of course, this was in the 1970's. Our daughters had blue mouths, blue tongues, blue hands and were totally filled up with blueberries by the time we got home. I love those memories.
So, if you can't enjoy freshly picked blueberries today, I hope you will enjoy my photos.
