If you're in Maryland, here's some helpful info about berry picking. We went blueberry, blackberry, and peach picking today. It was far easier than I expected! Honestly, it was a lot easier than strawberry picking. I have been a bit intimidated to do it before, but I'm glad I finally did it this year. It went well. I picked 4 1/2 pounds of blackberries, 5 pounds of blueberries, and a bucketful of white and yellow peaches. The kids picked a few, but they enjoyed themselves.
We went to Spring Valley Farm on Rte 1. The website is here: www.springvalleyfarm.com If you go north on rte 1 and go over Conowingo Dam. Pass Rte 222, and then it's just a little bit farther up on your right. There is a good sign, but start watching for it once you pas rte 222.
The prices for this season are:
$2.65/lb for blueberries
$2.50/lb for blackberries (and they were sweet, not tart)
$1.00/lb for peaches (white and yellow cling varieties)
