I have been picking blueberries as a form of entertainment for as long as I can remember. My dad was a big fan of pick-your-own (u-pick-it for short) farms before they became as popular as they are now. Back then there was no such thing as organic so we all just dug into the chemically manipulated crops with abandon. The fruit picked by you, ripe and ready to enjoy, was so far superior to anything that you could buy in a grocery store that picking strawberries, blueberries, peaches and apples became a source of cheap entertainment for our perpetually cash strapped family. You can't eat a movie after watching it but after a day (or at least a few hours) at the farm you came home with something substantial to enjoy for a few days or weeks or months after.
