Each Spring, the once barren bushes planted across countless acres of fertile fields come alive with colors of blue! And this means only one thing…
It’s Blueberry Season!
We’d been saying all Winter that we wanted to go blueberry picking this year, but even though we are Florida natives, the hot humid weather just isn’t our thing. This would mean in order to time it right, waiting long enough for the bushes to be full of large ripe berries, but not long enough that we run out of a chance to grab a cool snap meant we would have to rely on a heavy dose of luck!
Luck came in with Mother’s Day Weekend!
Here in Florida, come May we’re hard pressed to see a day with temps any lower than the mid to upper 80s, so when I saw the weather forecast predicting a cooler than normal Saturday, I knew it was meant to be.
And if we couldn’t get any luckier, this would fall on Mother’s Day weekend, providing the ideal scenario for something special to do with Mom.
For most, the vibrant blue berries are easily seen against the backdrop of the green leaves and brown sticks that make up the bushes they are home to, but for me, I have to rely on my fingers to do the seeing when blueberry picking!
