We move from red to blue this week -- that's not a political statement: the cherry trees are picked clean, so we're move on to blueberries. We have several hundred blueberry bushes, with different varieties that ripen on different schedules, so this weekend we'll give the blueberries a break and shift to black raspberries. Then we'll go back to the blueberry patch.
Blueberries are both delicious and surprisingly nutritious: they'll de-oxidize you, strengthen your heart, lower your blood pressure, sharpen your thoughts, and even improve your memory. You can dump them right from your picking bucket into a ziplock bag and freeze them for pies or smoothies in November. Come on out and pick your fill.
