With Blueberry Blast here in Nipigon comes the Blueberries.

rex-blueberriesWith a long cold winter that seemed to extend until last week, it seemed the blueberries may be late.

First venture up camp 81 road east of Nipigon to the blueberry fields I am most accustomed to did yield some berries. Although there are still allot of green/unripe berries with some areas almost 100% unripe (north facing hill slopes), most south facing hill slopes run 60-90% ripe – just stepping past the areas of unripe berries will allow for a long protracted season like last year with some people picking right into september.
