*This weekend may be the last chance we'll get in on the really good berry picking. They just posted a rating of 8 (Best it's been so far!) That means there are lots of berries out there. So, for those who still want to go as a group, we will begin to meet up at Starbucks at 8520 Abrams Rd near Royal Ln about 10:30AM Sunday morning then head out from there at 11AM. Possibly some of you may want to car pool if some are willing help out with gas. Hopefully any rain that is forecast will hold off until the evening.
** Also, they suggest to bring a small ice chest or cooler to put your bags of blueberries in to keep them cool after they pack them for you. Otherwise, they tend to retain the heat from being out in the sun and will begin to get soft and mushy in the plastic bags. And bring a wide brim hat and sunscreen and a bottle of drinking water with you. Blueberry bushes are not very tall so there is no shade out in the sun while picking berries and we might be out there a hour at least in the orchard. I'm not sure but I think they may have a few little canopies scattered around out there if you need to get out of the sun for a while.
These are some of the ones I picked last year.
