Monadnock: It's Never Lonely at the Top
It is summer, the season of dog days and lemonade afternoons, and there isn’t a cloud in the sky. You are standing at the head of a gentle green hill before countless rows of blueberry bushes heavy with ripe fruit. Behind these, Mount Monadnock rises in the distance. Bucket in hand, you enjoy a morning of premier picking, and find raspberries, blueberry plants, cold drinks, local produce, baked goods, and goats for petting, too. There’s even a sandbox for young pickers who run out of steam. Though wild blueberries sing like no other fruit, the varieties cultivated here are the tastiest we’ve found. Fingertips and tongues may be blue, but your spirit will be just the opposite. Monadnock Berries, 545 West Hill Rd., Troy. 603-242-6417.
