Champney's Blueberry Farm in Ravenel, SC held its 4th annual "Berries for Babies" event today, in which 50% of all U-Pick sales went to neonatal nurseries at MUSC Children's Hospital. There was a heat advisory in effect, with the "feels like" temperature hitting 108 degrees throughout the morning and afternoon. MUSC was on hand to show off a new pediatric ambulance and helicopter. Luckily, there were plenty of cold drinks and icy, sugar-syrup-based snacks on hand as well. Since moving to Charleston, Rebecca and I have made blueberry picking a yearly tradition.
Maybe next year it will be slightly cooler.
