Farm Fresh #Blueberries + Muffin Recipe

blueberry3

Ah, blueberry season. What a wonderful time of the year!

Today my friend Rachael and I drove out to a Georgia farm to pick 2 gallons each of sweet, juicy blueberries. 2 1/2 hours later we succeeded. It was a nice time to catch up and enjoy the beautiful weather we Tennesseans have been having (80 degrees in July? Yeehaw!).

When I returned home, I froze some for smoothies, put a bag in the fridge for munching and gave a half bag to my friend who is staying with us for the summer. I also baked a batch of blueberry muffins that are featured on this post today.
