You are warmly invited to the soft opening of Balderson Blueberries u- pick.
August 3, 4, 9am-7pm.
Drop in and pick up some field fresh blueberries, check out my little Merry Blueberry store and dessert cafe, and the small cut-your-own flower garden.
My season this year is only for family, friends, neighbors, and faithful blog readers, and will last as long as I have blueberries. Unlike strawberries, blueberries do not keep regenerating fruit throughout the season; the number of berries are determined by buds formed the previous fall. Once the berries are picked out, my season will be over. But the blooms on my earliest ripeningy ‘patriot’ variety indicate a good crop.
I’m still working on building the infrastructure for the overhead bird netting. It is proving to be every bit as grueling as expected. I’m sure someone with the right expertise and equipment could do a far better (and faster) job of it but I’m too far into the gargantuan project to change lanes now. I suppose that as long as it eventually gets finished (and works!) without completely unhinging my sanity, I’ll be glad I did it.
In any case, bird netting finished or not, I would love it if you came and shared my soft opening with me. Get a complimentary family portrait taken and enjoy a complimentary glass of my blueberry wine. Directions are on my website at baldersonblueberries.com. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me. Excited to see you soon!
