Annual Blueberry Picking.

 With Melbourne experiencing very pleasant cooler weather at the moment, we set out into the Dandenong Ranges for our annual blueberry picking morning The farm is in a lovely bush setting, with huge cages over the berry bushes to protect them from the birds and animals. You can see the debris on top of the netting in the upper left of the above picture.
 With the abundance of fruit and two of us picking it only takes an hour or so to fill the buckets which hold about 4 Kg each.
This one is almost full, although the berries will settle down a bit with the bumping of the car on the way home, a trip taking just over an hour. Enough here to freeze for the year ahead, to make into cakes, bread, relishes and to give some away as well.
