Saturday from 7AM - 1:00PM: Blueberry U-Pick and Plant Sale at B & G Blueberries!





Last week went wonderfully at B & G Blueberries. It's a true family operation. One generation washing out blueberry buckets for picking... the next generation weighing bags laden with sweet fruit... and the next generation directing traffic. I love seeing family businesses like this and am proud to be a part of this year's fun.

The picking price is just $2.50 a lb, too! And though the berries aren't organic, they also aren't sprayed with any pesticides so you can nibble without fear. I'm going to pick a few gallons for my freezer tomorrow.

And if you haven't tried real Florida rabbiteye blueberries before, you're in for a treat. Bill also has some Southern Highbush blueberry bushes at untouchable prices. $12 for a 3-gallon plant. Crazy.

As for me, I'll have a wide selection of perennial vegetables and fruit trees, including gingers, wild blueberries, dwarf pomegranates, chaya, coffee, Okinawa spinach and more. 

Come on by, pick some berries and buy some plants!

Here's the official announcement:
