Picking the First Blueberries of the Season

It's berry picking season once again and the blueberries at my Bedford, New York farm are ripe for the picking!

Plump, juicy, and sweet, with vibrant colors from red to the deepest purple-black, blueberries are one of nature’s finest treasures. I love to use them for jams, jellies, and pies, but they’re also wonderful with cereal, in pancakes and cobblers, and of course, in handfuls on their own. Low in fat, yet packed with vitamin-C and antioxidants, it’s not surprising they’re one of America’s favorite fruits to eat.

Yesterday, we started picking lots of delicious blueberries. Enjoy these photos.
