Earlier this week I accepted an invitation to visit a blueberry farm in Hudson, Florida, and pick my own. It was my first time doing this, although it’s a popular draw this time of the year for many.
We visited Owen’s Blueberry Farm on a bright, warm, sunny morning. My friend, a repeat customer of the farm, explained that they did not use pesticides on the blueberries, something I was very impressed by. She said they use “cannons” to scare the birds away sometimes, so be prepared in case PTSD might be a problem. Fortunately, there were no cannons that day.
