Pick Your Own Produce

I went blueberry picking today at a local blueberry farm.

Blauwe Bessen

I did a little pricing and it seems like blueberries are going for an average of €1.50 per 125 grams, which puts them at about €12 per kilo. I don't know about you, but at that price I cannot afford to eat blueberries... unless I pick them myself! The "you pick" blueberry farm here charges €3 per kilo if you do the hard work yourself!

I found this Pick Your Own website which looks like a fantastic resource for finding pick your own farms. I'm going to submit a couple that I know of in The Netherlands and see if I can do a bit more digging around to find others local to me here.

Picking your own Works for Me! What works for you?

Thats so cool that you were able to find a pick your own farm! I wish they had ones for corn on the cob. I saw at AH they had to teenie pathetic looking ones for 3 euros!
Im going to hunt around and see if I can find some in Enschede. I'd love some strawberries and other things. I dont mind picking at all!

Wow! They look delicious!
Pick your own is so much fun. When I was in Norway, we went with some friends and picked strawberries from endless fields on a farm. That was such a fun day. Then with some other friends, I got to pick 'wild' blueberries, cloud berries, strawberries, and raspberries. That was a wonderful experience.

Have a great weekend.

Yummy. Were they good? I'm trying to talk Marcel into coming and making a day trip out of it. I think at 3 euro a kilo I'd like to buy about 4 kilos and put them in the freezer to last through the winter. YUM!!!

Yum-o! :) I just bought blueberries on sale at the grocery store for just under $2 a pound. I will freeze some of them, and might just have to make blueberry muffins this weekend with some of them. ;)
