Blueberries, 2019

Blueberries...one pint for entire season

Blueberries ripen slowly over a long period of time—much longer than strawberries. It also takes a lot of berries to fill a pint. Therefore, we assign a seasonal quota to give everyone a chance at picking. If you can't fill your pint in a one visit, you're welcome to come back for the rest at a later time. All full-share and half-share members, as well as share partners who have paid the membership fee, can pick the seasonal quota.

 

A NOTE ABOUT THE BIRD NETTING

The blueberries are covered in protective netting to keep out the birds. The nets are held to the ground with rebar, and clothespins are pinned so that you can hold the nets out of the way while picking. Please take care to properly replace the netting when finished.

 

A NOTE ABOUT LITTLE PICKERS

Babies and kids can easily eat their body weight in the blueberry patch. We applaud their enthusiasm, but we also ask parents to be mindful that field snacking counts towards your seasonal quota.
