The blueberries are ripening and ready to pick! We have been picking in the morning when everything is fresh and cool. Because many of the bushes are heritage varieties grown for their taste (rather than their “earliness”), we like to gather from several different bushes so that we have a selection of favors (sweet, tart, complex, mellow) and textures (nearly seedless, high in fiber, thin skinned). We then enjoy those fresh blueberries with our breakfast. Somehow everything feels right with the world when there is such abundance.
I will try to remember to bring my camera on my next trip so I can share a picture or two.
