  On June 24th I ate early-ripened blueberries in the Hampton Furnace area at the deep Pine Barrens. By today, my biological clock was itching to go out to my Abundance spot, vicinity of Lakewood (Pine Barrens Light).

Seems that I could have waited another week for peak production. Picking was slow because of this and because of the abundance of aggressive mosquitoes. Yet I came home with a 3/4 bucket-full (about 5 liters / 1.3 gallons)
