With the National Blueberry Festival in downtown South Haven just a week away and the blueberry Crop presently in full luscious bloom, we thought we'd share our favorite U-pick spots around Southwest Michigan with you.
Call ahead if the weather is dicey to make sure U-pick is still a go, and don't forget the sunscreen and bug spray. We'll just be over here eating our collective weight in blueberries.
And if you need something to do with all those juicy berries, this is currently our favorite recipe for blueberry buckle.
