This is National Blueberry Month!
For many years blueberries were not on my fruit list. They were rather expensive and not many people grew them in this area. But for some reason they have caught on in popularity and there are many blueberry farms in this are that offer you the option of “pick your own,” which brigs the price down.
I enjoy picking this fruit. They pick easy and store well. My favorite berry farm is on Foxhill Road in Russell, Pa. I head up early in the morning when the fog is just lifting off the hills and the temperatures are still cool. In a few hours I can easily pick 20 quarts of berries, most of which I will freeze for later use in the winter months.
For those of you who do not know, blueberries are very high in anti-oxidants and great for your health.
