Blueberries!

We went picking blueberries at B&G Blueberries in Ft. McCoy yesterday. The flavor is wonderful and the owners are some of the nicest folks you'll ever meet this side of heaven.

Bill is a personal friend and has been a good advisor on my own blueberry growing as well as being a great mentor when I launched my nursery.


Here is their picking schedule:
