Blueberries, raspberries, cherries, oh my! And it’s July, which means the blueberries are coming in, followed by the cherries, and then raspberries.
Farmer Caleb Torrice, who with his wife, Patricia, own and farm Tabora Farms, says their blueberry crop will be more spread out this year due to the cold weather we had earlier this spring. The good news is that ripening will be stretched out, and we’ll have blueberries longer. The not-so-bad news is that you’ll have to do some careful picking to avoid getting unripe berries.
