Hood strawberries are gone, but blueberries are already here. This is early; blueberries usually begin after the 4th of July. This year’s crop is the heavies I have ever seen. Expect the season to last till late August. U-pick price $1.25 a pound. People, that’s a bargain!
and pink currants are also ready to pick. Pink currants are delicious out of hand, black currants make absolutely superior jelly and can also be juiced for a winter tonic, as they are very nutritious and, unique among fruits, contain iron. Gooseberries are also available. Currants and gooseberries are $1:00 a pound u-pick.
