National Blueberry Month? A full month is devoted to those little delicious blue antioxidant berries that I love year round but especially when they're 'in season' in New England. I just found out about the July designation the other day when Boston Globe's Sunday Magazine featured the Geddes Blueberry Farm in Gilmanton, NH. (The article is definitely worth a read and then maybe a trip to scenic Gilmanton if you, like me, have an interest in supporting local farms and small farmers by buying locally.)
That same interest in supporting small, local farms has led me many times to family owned Verrill Farm in Concord, Mass. On Friday I saw a tweet from John (the Farm's great marketing guy!) @VerrillFarm who posted about their Blueberry Pancake Breakfast scheduled for the following morning.
"Hmm," I thought, "I love blueberries - I'm going!" and tweeted back pretty much just that to John. My tweet was seen by Kathy of @Bos_Sportswoman and she asked about details of the event and within moments we had plans to meet on Saturday morning at the farm to attend!
Here's to healthy living, eating whole foods and supporting local farms and small farmers... and to new friends to enjoy a great Saturday morning with!
