Closed for the Season!

Well, it’s time.  We had thought we’d have one last picking of blueberries, but, upon looking at the field, we decided there are not enough berries to do this.  Maybe the birds had a dessert! You know, blueberry season is like many other events in life (sorry, I’m going to be philosophical for a moment).  […]

Sundays Picking

Well,  summer has finally arrived in earnest.  I always have mixed  feelings about all this intense heat because  it’s really great for  ripening of the berries, but it also  makes for a hot day in the field.  Most Saturday pickers came early and avoided the  afternoon heat but surprisingly  the heat  didn’t keep away the  […]
