rinsed blueberriesLooking for a sweet way to add healthy foods to your diet? You may be able to pick up some ideas at a free program next week from the Rock Island Public Library.

Blueberries: Our Native Super Fruit, a free program on growing and using blueberries, will be offered by Master Gardener LaRea McMillin at 2:00 pm on Thursday, March 26 at the Main Library. Ranking only second to strawberries in US food consumption, blueberries deliver a one-two punch of both flavor and cell-saving antioxidants. McMillin will present information on planting, fertilizing, maintaining, harvesting, and landscaping with blueberry plants, as well as how to store, freeze and use berries.
