Pick Your Own Blueberries in Strafford, NH

Nearing the End

Last Friday we had this fun group of people come to pick blueberries and blackberries for their Saturday wedding.   Who knew getting married could be so much fun!  They managed to crawl through the blackberry patch and snag the best fruit of the season and picked a lot of blueberries too.  The bride and groom told me they were going to combine their fruit with fresh fruit from Warren’s Farm (where they were getting married) to make the wedding dessert.  Sounds like a perfect wedding!

I can’t believe we are almost ready to call it a season at Berrybogg.  We had a lot of people out this weekend picking the last of the Berkeleys and Jerseys so we decided to close the farm until Thursday when we will make a last run at the Late Blues which are looking big and beautiful.  Unfortunately, with all the rain from the previous weeks we have been suffering the wrath of mosquitoes so make sure you wear bug spray when you come to pick.  Early mornings and late afternoon seems to be the worst but the weather forecast is for bright and clear skies without a lot of humidity so hopefully that will minimize their numbers.
