Blueberries on the Blue Ridge Parkway

When I realized that it was time to go “a-berrying” again, I started looking for places to go on the Blue Ridge Parkway, where blueberries are “a-plenty”.

I ran across this wonderful blog:¬† Milkweed Diaries.¬†¬†¬† “Last week my sister Mary and I took our farm interns blueberry picking on the Blue Ridge Parkway, where the five of us picked about 11 pounds of wild blueberries in a couple of hours.”¬† They took their interns with them!¬† How wonderful they are keeping the tradition alive.

This prolific fruit can be found abundantly on the Blue Ridge Parkway at elevations over 4,000 feet.

According to the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation, Graveyard Fields, the Craggies, the Blacks Balsam Range, and the Grandfather Mountain corridor remain the popular destinations for finding this delicious fruit.

I can’t wait to make my own blueberry pies…
