[feast_advanced_jump_to] Blueberry season in the Pacific Northwest runs from late spring to mid-summer. I friggin love blueberries, especially since they are all around us. To me, they’re the perfect berry – not too sweet, not too messy, they hold up well, and they freeze like a champ. Plus my kids look forward to berry picking all year. Granted this is likely because they eat more berries off the bushes than we actually collect and take home (shhh don’t tell this to our favorite farm we go to).
