1. This is my first experience with blueberry picking. For those of you who live in areas where you cant and WOULDN'T blueberry pick, this is how it is done. We drove out to some farm in the middle of somewhere, New York. My friend, who is an experienced picker, assured me this was the best place, for the quality and price. Plus, we'd get home in time for lunch.
I was instructed on how to prepare for this quest, by donning a two belted construction strung through the handle of a pail, and slung over my shoulder, and across my chest.
They grow on bushes that stand between 3 and 5ft. tall.
I was then told, to massage the clumps of berries. And it works! They fall into your hands.
