Did you know…July 15th is BC Blueberry Day!
Don’t you love blueberries? There’s so many ways to celebrate them. They go with just about everything from cereal and smoothies to enhancing cocktails like sangria. One of my favorite cakes is a blueberry/lemon. The lemon compliments the blueberries really nicely. Blueberries are delicious, they’re loaded with vitamins and look so pretty. What’s not to love?
BC Blueberries are a big deal for British Columbia. Blueberry Day is a way to show appreciation for our province’s hardworking BC blueberry farmers while commemorating the start of the fresh season.
Annually, the BC Blueberry Council begins fresh blueberry season in July. With more than 600 high bush blueberry growers covering more than 30,000 hectares across the province, this is a busy time for the BC Blueberry Council and its members.
