    Anyone have any info on this year’s wild blueberry crop? Should be getting close. I’ll be checking at my usual spots in the EUP in the next week. Thanks all.

    Wonder bout the UP? They have had lots of rain. Could hamper the bear baiting?

    I believe the spring frosts up north put a fork to the BB season. We had a couple of cold, long frosts.

    Lots of Michigan blueberries in the grocery, assuming from commercial growers.

    My son and his two kids went out yesterday afternoon near Raco and picked a gallon. He said that they are pretty small and lots of green ones yet. Next week should be peak there.

    Ya, I helped trim blueberries back over 40 years ago. The big blueberry farmers around here trim every bush back every year to produce bigger berries
