Picking my way through Summer

This Summer we have been fortunate to spend a ton of time outdoors, in particular berry picking. We have been strawberry picking, raspberry picking, blackberry picking and now blueberry picking. For deliciousness factor my favorite berries to pick are raspberries, but I also appreciate the thoughtfulness of blackberries to be free and plentiful and the ease in which clusters of blueberries fall off the branches. Basically, I love all berries for different reasons.

What are your favorite berries to pick in the Summer?

Harvold's is our favorite for strawberries and raspberries, located at 32325 NE 55th Street Carnation, WA 98014. They only accept cash so plan accordingly. 

Larsen Lake and Mercer Slough are convenient places in Bellevue to go blueberry picking. Both have produce stands in addition and Mercer Slough accepts credit cards. Bybee Nims located in the shadow of Mt. Si is the most scenic place for blueberry picking, but a tad pricer than the two places in Bellevue.

Here is a comprehensive list of where you can blueberry pick around the state.
