High bush blueberries are ready for the help of pollinators to make for an excellent crop later in the summer! Thanks to Blueberry Acres U-Pick for the progress of the crop this year!Watching the blueberries progress during the Spring is one of our favourite sights on the farm. The buds in April were slow to open with the cool temperatures and then in May we started to see activity pick up. June kicked into high gear with bloom on the early varieties. It's time for the bees on the farm to get busy pollinating. Did you know each blossom will develop into a berry?
