I just had a feeling, given the heat and humidity the last couple of days, that I just may find some ripe blues in my backwoods, ridge-top, early ripening berry picking spot.
And I did! This afternoon I was able to harvest my first handful of wild blueberries of the season. It looks to be a good year! With just a few more hot, sunny days I will be harvesting these berries to make into blueberry muffins, pancakes cakes and jam -and- to save in the freezer to enjoy over the winter in smoothies and on oatmeal.
