There's a lot of wannabe blueberries out there, and the bumblebees who do most of the pollinating at Parkland Berry Farm have finally showed up. They have a lot of work to do, and they're awesome at turning blossoms into blueberries. We'll be picking these blueberries by mid July.

Lots of pruning and spring maintenance in the blueberry patch has everything in 'ship shape.' It's exciting to see the earliest blueberry buds so close to blooming. A little over two months until picking begins.

Spring greetings Parkland fans. The blueberry patch had a good winter and is waking up and raring to go. Lots of clean up and pruning underway to get ready for the season.

The first big fat buds on the bushes, like the ones seen here, are flower buds that will become clusters of 7 to 12 berries. Leaves come out after the flowers bloom. We'll be picking blueberries in 3 months.

Sunday morning, August 16, 2020. There are still blueberries to pick. There is a good amount of what is pictured - a light pick of ripe berries among clusters of immature berries yet to ripen. Reasonable picking for late in the season if you want a quart or two.

Yes, we are still picking blueberries at Parkland Berry Farm! We are past peak beginning our 5th week, but there are lots of great berries to pick. 'Blueberry Meadow ' is closed for the season. Late producing varieties in 'Blueberry Forest' are still yielding nicely pickable quantities of delicious berries. There will be blueberries available for several weeks from now, but picking will become increasingly thin.

U-picking will begin Saturday July 11.

There's a few blue berries showing up and this week's warm weather should increase ripening. Strong picking should continue up to 4 weeks.

Please abide by social distancing guidelines and help Parkland out by:
* only handle quart containers you use
* there will be picking boxes, but please hang them on the "to be cleaned" hooks after use. To help with the one use between cleaning policy the number of picking boxes has been more than doubled.

The crop is looking great this year! Hope to see you soon.

Thin pickings. There are a few berries left but fewer and farther between, suitable to get a quart or enough for a pie with a little extra time.

Parkland will be open for picking beginning Monday, July 15. The very first berries are beginning to ripen.

Picking will include the lower block which has been too poorly maintained to pick the last several years. The bushes are generally shorter and smaller than the top block, but will have plenty if nice berries (photos).

And for you Parkland veterans, just want to show the newly graded entrance road. It's a little rocky but gone are the big ruts and washouts caused by heavy rainstorms over the last several years.

Here's a couple picking tips for when we open on Monday, July 15:
-pick only totally blue ripe berries;
-check to make sure there is no red on the back of the berry, "redbacks" are not as sweet as fully ripe berries;
-a picked blueberry will stay exactly as you picked it, it will not ripen further after picking;
-the best way to pick a blueberry is to 'roll ' it off the stem with your thumb, this gets berries off the stem the easiest while preventing damage to the remaining berries in the cluster;
-use the picking boxes; picking hands free is the easiest and fastest way to pick.

One last reminder:
Parkland has blueberries only.
No strawberries. No raspberries.

Blueberries are developing nicely! Still a couple weeks to go. The access road has been regraded, and with a little raking, will be in fine shape for the picking season.

There's gonna be some blueberry canyons this year. The bushes have been enjoying the mix of sun and rain, so many branches are drooping with the weight of all the berries.

Picking should begin in 3 weeks- the second week in July.

Blueberries are forming nicely.  We should be picking in a month, by the second week in July.
