Jewels of Summer
The wild, highbush blueberries on Pitcher Mountain are exceptional again this year. This is where Ian has been busy trail clearing this spring and summer.
An early morning rain shower followed by blazing sunshine made for somewhat uncomfortable picking conditions. I managed 6 quarts (5.6 L) before the heat and humidity became too oppressive. Then I went home for a nap. But I will return to pick another day and stock the freezer with these summer beauties.
