I love blueberries. They go well with many things, especially desserts and drinks. They also one of the world’s heathiest food item. They are a great source of vitamins, fibre, anitoxidants, low-calories, low-fat, and so on, so on… A good friend of mine owns a blueberry farm (well, his parents does) and when prompted, he will very generously give me a good bag of blueberries. He is definitley one of the coolest guys on this world! So Wendy decided that we should brave the summer sun and go blueberry picking. I myself don’t really like being in the sun so much as I enjoy the urban lifestyle in an air-conditioned room, plus, too much sun makes your skin look older faster!
We actually overran the place so we have to make a fast U-turn on No. 6 Rd in Richmond (south of Blundell Rd.)
We were greeted in a tent by a East-Indian that spoke little English but was extremely friendly! We barely communicated our thoughts to each other but we managed. She was also very nice to point out where the good stuff were.
This was the sign facing the other way (heading north).
There were SO MANY blueberries bushes that if we had the whole day, we still would not have finished picking it all! Here’s a sample of a cluster of ready-to-pick blueberries. I must be honest that Wendy and I half-feasted in the secluded bushes! lol
This was our end product after about 45 minutes. The rate was $1.50/lb and we had actually 2.5 lbs of blueberry goodness! I just plopped down $4 and the very pleasant East-Indian lady (should’ve got her name!) just topped up my bucket with probably 1+ lb of the good stuff they have just for “retail” sale to make it worth the $4 I just gave her (and probably more). Wow, simply wow! Wendy and I were in awe. So good service, good fun on the cheap, a chance to escape my computer! Highly recommended!
