You might think that after all these years we would have developed a really reliable method of predicting how many berries and when, but we have not. One of the challenges to the farming thing is all the 1000’s of factors that affect the result, so predicting is hard. This week we have been telling lots of people that we will have ripe berries and be open on Saturday at 8am. We will be here but we are now letting everyone know that there really aren’t enough of the early season berries out in the patch to make the trip worth your time and effort. We have mid and late season varieties that will ripen in the weeks ahead–please check back to see whether and when we will be open. Have a lovely weekend.
This warm weather is great for ripening blueberries. Robert just walked the patch and says “we should be open in the morning”. So we will be open Wednesday morning starting at 8am. The patch will be open all day so come on by when you have a chance. If you can’t find time today come out on Saturday morning when we will be open once again.
Join us at Blueberry Gardens on June 15 from 10 am to 4 pm for our annual Open House. Learn about lavender, beekeeping, composting, and more, and attend a yoga, t’ai chi, or drama kids class. There will also be lavender products for sale, massage, bodywork, Reiki, and of course our organic u pick blueberries by the pint and quart! Admission: $5 per person (children 12 and under free).
