Hello blueberry pickers,
Daniel’s Creek Blueberry Farm is open this week. There are plenty of blueberries and you could easily pick pounds in less than 15 minutes. And best of all–they’re delicious!
That being said, the blueberry patch is a bit treacherous, and the patch is flooded from the beaver dam. Here are some guidelines for picking this year:
–Boots, pants, and long sleeve shirts highly recommended.
–Please do not cross either bridge; the bridge going to the dock I need to repair and I have not gone across the bridge going to the other blueberries to see the beaver damage, so it’s not cleared there.
–The patch is very uneven so please be careful when picking.
–The patch may be too hard for small children and people who have difficulty walking to manuever.
–There is some blackberry in the patch, watch out for thorns.
–There is standing water going toward the creek and toward the road side of the patch, you will sink into the mud, but you can see part of the beaver dam.
I’m not going to put the sign out on Woodinville-Duvall Road, the blueberry patch is located at 17900 185th Ave. NE, Woodinville, please park down by the barn.
Have fun picking and eating your blueberries!
Are you looking for a new recipe to use up your frozen blueberries? I made this new-to-me recipe this morning; Ina Garten’s Blueberry Coffee Cake Muffins. They were super yummy, moist deliciousness. I hope you’ll enjoy!

Hello pickers–it’s been awhile, we hope you’ve been enjoying your summer. The blueberries are in and ready to be picked. I will be putting out the signs on Monday that we are open, however if you would like to stop by Friday or Saturday that would be fine, everything is set up (Sunday there is a small event going on in the yard so please no picking).
The field is in a very “rustic” state. It has not been mowed, I have gone out and made some trails and will continue to do so to reach more berries. (our mowers never showed up, but someone is stopping by tomorrow I’m hoping they will be able to assist us!). Please wear pants and boots, your legs will thank you for it!
email me any questions you have, email@example.com or comment!
Ok pickers, there are still tons of blueberries to be picked. Come out and pick a few more pounds to freeze to have on hand to brighten up your winter baking.
Wear boots and pants, the field is getting soggy.
Fingers crossed for some good picking weather (no rain) all week.
It looks like we’re almost to the end of the blueberry season–probably one more week. The weather is going to cooperate with us this week so come out and pick blueberries to freeze and preserve!
If you ever wanted to kick up your blueberry pancakes a notch, here’s how:
Use your Daniel’s Creek Blueberries to make a blueberry syrup. If you don’t have a recipe here you go:
3 cups blueberries
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 T lemon juice
Combine all ingrediants in a saucepan over high heat and bring to a boil, then simmer for 15 minutes. Stir regularly. Cool and store in the fridge. If you have an emersion blender–blend for a very smooth syrup.
Ok, for the pancakes. Make pancakes as you would regularly, add 2 T of blueberry syrup (or as much as you want) to the batter. Make pancakes and sprinkle fresh blueberries on top of the batter. Serve with the remaining blueberry syrup, more fresh blueberries (and whip cream if you dare).
It was a great day for picking blueberries. I picked 4 pounds in 45 minutes. Now onto the cleaning….
I can’t wait to use these up; I’m thinking some jam, a baked good, a dessert and freeze the rest.
What are you doing with your blueberries?
What a beautiful summer day, perfect for picking some blueberries!
This is one of my all time favorite blueberry recipes:
I just made this today for my Mother-in-Law’s birthday. It was a smash, it was gone before I could even take a picture of it. Lemon and blueberry is a great summer-y combination and I love that this entire recipe can be made in the food processor. Give it a try and let me know what you think! What is your favorite summer blueberry recipe?
The blueberries look and taste great so we’ll be open for picking tomorrow, Monday August 15. We’re all set up and ready to go. Don’t forget to wear pants and boots. Hope to see you out in the field!
