What to do with children in Savannah: U-pick blackberries

hart-blackberry-pickingOn Saturday morning before the real heat hit, we hit the u-pick blackberry field @ the Bamboo Farm and Coastal Gardens.

It’s a fun summer activity for kids.  They can also check out the vegetable garden, banana trees, various flower gardens and, of course, the bamboo.

We arrived home with eight pounds of blackberries, which promptly turned into blackberry milkshakes, blackberry crumb bars and blackberry breakfast bars.

Blackberry picking continues through June. Cost for blackberries is $3 per pound.  9 am-4 pm (or until picked out for the day)  Mon-Sat.

Call ahead to make sure the field is open. 912.921.5497. The field can be picked out quickly at the beginning and end of the season. More information can also be found here.
