Tuesday afternoon was perfectly ripe for picking.

Several people took advantage of the cooler, cloudier (and calmer) day to fill buckets with blueberries at Blue Moon Berry Farm in Warner. Pick-your-own has been open for just two weeks now.

Farmer Mike Bux wandered between some of his 3,000 bushes, checking on his customers Tuesday. He found satisfied customers like Epsom resident Mary Jane Cleveland, who planned to make some jam.

“Your blueberries,” she told him, “are fabulous.”
