A Few Helpful Hints
- Use a gentle twisting motion to pick ripe berries. If a berry is blue, it's ripe -- there may be other berries on the same branch that aren't ready yet, and a twisting motion will free your prize without shaking other berries loose.
- Wear comfortable shoes!
- Consider bringing or wearing a hat. The blueberry patch is nice and sunny, and a floppy or festive hat can prevent sunburn.
- Bring your friends and family, but leave your lovely pets at home!
