A brief commercial announcement: For locals and anyone visiting the area, tomorrow, Thursday, July 25th will be our first open day of the season at the blueberry farm. We’ll have our earliest berries, the sweet, delicious Hardy Blues (pictured above, photo taken this afternoon) available, so come by and pick if you can. Hours are 10:00am to 5:00pm. I will also update the harvest hotline (206.855.0947) in the evening, so call ahead to check if you want to pick on Friday or through the weekend. This early in the season, we have to watch the ripening process closely to make sure we have plenty of berries before we can make the call on opening.
We also have u-pick, self-serve dahlias available and looking great. Open from dawn to dusk. Same place, Bainbridge Island Blueberry Co., North Madison, just south of Valley.
Whew! Long day today…all the projects I had 10 months to take care of are getting done now. Just in time. Will still be working on getting our new farm sink up and running tomorrow while people are picking. Come on by if you can. We now return you to your regularly scheduled programming.
