On a hot muggy Saturday, I headed into Sandy Mush to pick blueberries at the Longbranch Environmental Education Center — a mountainside community whose residents might be mowing their grass, tending to American Chestnut saplings or composing letters to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. photos by Margaret Williams
It's wild blueberry time in Western North Carolina. These beauties were photographed, picked and eaten about a week ago, in a secret location off a side trail very, very close to the parking lot at Black Balsam and smack dab in the middle of a blackberry patch. (I only tell you this because by now these off-the-beaten-path bushes have been picked clean by other foraging folk brave enough to dive through the briar patch.) Time grows short for picking wild blueberries and blackberries. Do you have a favorite spot? (Hey, the Asheville Citizen-Times already divulged some of the best spots, in its Aug. 12 print article "It's Blueberry Picking Time in in the WNC Mountains.") photo by Margaret Williams
