He taught us all about wild blueberries.
Here are some things we learned...
*Blueberry plants and certain fungi have a symbiotic relationship.
*Maine produces the most wild blueberries in the world!
*Wild blueberries are only found in Maine and Canada.
*Blueberry bushes turn red in the fall.
*There are many diseases that can harm wild blueberries.
*Blueberry plants need about an inch of rainfall each week during the growing season.
*Bees are very important to the growth of blueberries.
*Frozen wild blueberries are actually fresher than many fresh berries found in the store as they are frozen very quickly.
Then we had a blueberry snack with blueberry muffins and blueberries with whipped cream!
We would like to thank Mr. Yarborough for coming all the way down to Gorham to talk with us!
