Green BlueberriesPosted: June 8, 2013
It seems like a kind of miracle, but here they are! Actually looking like blueberries, and nice ones at that. When the berries start taking shape, we start getting stoked for the upcoming season. Of course, we also start feeling the panic of a thousand things we still need to do before the berries ripen and we open for picking, but it’s a lot more fun working around the bushes when you can see what you’re working for.
It’s been quite a bit warmer this spring than last, so the berries are ahead of where they were this time last year. But it’s still too soon to predict when we’ll be able to pick. If it stays warm and sunny, it could be a lot earlier than last year. If June-uary descends on us, things could slow way down.
So…if you live nearby or plan to visit Bainbridge and want to pick, your best bet is to call our blueberry “hotline” (206.855.0947) first. We’ll start updating it as soon as we have a better idea of when they’ll be ripe. The usual blueberry harvest time around here starts in late July, but as above, the actual dates are “subject to weather.” Stay tuned!
