On the topic of u-pick from yesterday . . . dahlias are in season here on the island too. You can find them on road-side stands or you can cut them yourself on a sunny summer afternoon. That’s what we did yesterday at Bainbridge Island Blueberry Co. My dahlias are not in bloom yet in my garden, so we enjoyed cutting three dozen yesterday to fill our house. Only $5 a dozen. In the orchard next door to the dahlias the blueberries are ripening away in the sun. They should be ripe by early August (2013). Can’t wait for more berry picking.
