Note for 2022: Blueberry picking typically begins Memorial Day weekend. This year the berries seem a little slow to mature so many farms aren’t quite ready.
Every summer my mother-in-law goes blueberry picking and comes home with enough blueberries to feed most of the Northshore. She eats some, freezes some, and gives them to friends. Blueberry season has just started here in south Louisiana so it’s a great time to go picking. Kids love this activity too so don’t be afraid to bring them along. Note: many farms only take cash so be prepared!
