Hello All Steep Hill Farm Blog Readers ,
Well, the time has finally arrived and we are ready to open the blueberry field for another picking season. The crop looks wonderful and the warmer than usual days and nights have sweetened the berries to almost perfection.
As I walked the field this morning to assess the crops readiness, I am forever amazed at the sight of all the blueberries. It truly is a great experience to wander around before anyone has touched a single berry. Everywhere you look you see blue and the plants are laden with fresh fruit, waiting to be picked and relieved of the heavy load of all the berries.
Now it is time to share this wonderful gift with all you that appreciate fresh fruit. It is a special time of year here in Maine so come on out and enjoy the warm summer days , the fresh fruit and great experience of picking your own berries.
Brenda and I are looking forward to seeing you this summer. We will be open at 8:00 A.M. Sunday morning until 7:00 P.M. Sunday evening for our first picking.
See you in the Patch ,
George and Brenda Joseph
