So, my few low bush blueberries are giving us about a handful a day, and I'm itching to get some more! Does anyone know of an orgainc upick blueberry place around?

I'm tempted to just go along the road and get them, although I don't trust all the salts, and whatever else from the cars may be lurking in them...also not such a good idea with toddler in tow.

Thanks!

Blueberries do grow somewhat slowly. Anyone coming up next week should be able to dig some at my house. I have a lot of them spread around the property in less than optimum places. A big part of what I do is relocation based. My wild highbush were all rescued from places where they were suffering badly. They look great now and are producing excellently.

I wish I could make it...would love more blueberries and some other native fruiting plants. Unfortunately, I have to work and was unable to get the day off.

sigh....

look for open spaces (clear cuts especially). there's usually some along the power lines if you live in a more rural area. Good Luck!

No kidding! The only place I would pick near a power line is where there is a no spray sign. For instance, I know right near sebago lake on the land owned by PWD (the part that's open to the public), is no spray. Actually, if I lived closer, I'd go pick on the Land Reserve....LOTS of good picking there.

(Wow - funny statement...I used to drive there for work...18 miles each way...and now I consider it too far. Huh.)
